  • Pen/pencil/paper
  • Personal snacks and lunch
  • A change of clothing for the ride home and a trash bag for your dirty gear

PPE requirements (provide your own if possible, but we have loaners)

  • Nomex or other fire resistant shirt and pants
  • Fire-rated hardhat with chin strap

Note: we have about 30 sets of Nomex (shirts/pants) and hardhats that we can loan. We’ll provide an opportunity for you to sign up for them (in the initial Zoom session) if you need them. You will be responsible for your own boots, gloves, and other clothing.
