Debuting the new gear in a Facebook post, the SCDF shared that the new fire suits come in a primarily khaki-based colour, with orange and black highlights.

Aesthetic changes aside, the new uniform also boasts new and improved features to allow firefighters to function even better at their jobs.

These include the likes of improved flame protection as well as increased abrasion resistance.

According to the post, firefights will start donning the new Firefighting Protectice Suit (FFPS) when responding to emergency calls.

The new FFPS features:

  • Better protection from extreme heat
  • Better protection from environmental conditions
  • Increased visibility in low light conditions
  • Upgraded fit to provide a larger range of motion
  • Lightweight and stretchable outer shell
  • Breathable fabric layers that reduce heat stress
  • Improved flame protection
  • Higher abrasion resistance

The SCDF plans to progressively roll out the new suits to fire stations across Singapore, so not all firefighters may be sporting them right away.

But the next time you do see an SCDF personnel on duty, try to see if you can identify their new FFPS.
