Those fancy white chefs shirts are not flame retardant, at least not the ones at my daughters high school, she lit her sleeve on fire at a parents night

 

 It’s not so bad if it’s 100% cotton. Cotton smolders, but polyester ignites, melts onto you like a self-dealing laminating sheet and then peels your skin off when doc gives it a tug.

It was the bottom of the sleeve. It caught fire when she reached for something on the back burner. Looked much worse than it really was.

I use old FR welding shirts when working on vehicles

So do I, I’m wearing my FR2 right now replacing a fuel pump on my F150. Why take chances and work pays for them. 

My brother in law lit up while torching on a vehicle. Was wearing a polyester sweater with layers underneath. He didn’t realize he was lit at first, when he did he couldn’t get it off over his head properly cause it was on fire and he didn’t want it on his face. Guy got burned down one whole side. His arm pit skin grew closed like a ducks web toe and they had to recut it open cause he couldn’t lift his arm properly. What a mess.

If there’s a fuel source fr doesn’t do anything more than regular cotton. My fr says right on the tag that it is NOT fireproof but will quit burning once the flame is removed. Never saw where they would do you much good other than it wouldn’t catch fire grinding. 

The problems we face today exist because the people who work for a living are outnumbered by the people who vote for a living.

The government can only "give" someone what they first take from another.

Uniforms are built for momentary fire burst. They gave us some demo tapes at OSHA training. Basically they have a hot air balloon rosebud and nail the clothes for 3-5 seconds with no ignition, minimal damage. That is usually how it shakes down in a split second high voltage arc blast or as we had.... a boiler fire blow back that bout killed one of our guys. Two different guys that parished inhaled fire and steam and destroyed their lungs so FR meant nothing, they were expose for 10-15 seconds. But, yeah, if you let yourself get soaked in gasoline and lit, wearing anything, your going to look like Freddy Krueger.
