By June 3, 2020 No Comments

” It seems like every time we get to a good spot, we find a new challenge.  This time around it is not virus related.  It is a seasonal challenge.  Summer in flight suits tend to be less than forgiving normally.  Adding PPE for a majority of transports adds an additional level of complexity when it comes to the Summer heat.   

We continue to think through where we can safely provide some PPE relief, and thought we would take a moment to share our latest guideline and explore what others are doing to combat the heat+PPE.”
