This report discusses the current problems related to the equipment for personal protection of employees from fire safety and civil protection, part of the unified rescue system, for incidents in critical infrastructure sites. It is emphasized on the types of protective equipment used in general or specific fire extinguishing activities. The specific requirements are applicable to the design and manufacture of the individual protection devices, which will ensure the proper appearance and the highest possible level of fire safety in the extinguishing operation, without being an obstacle for his moves during work, despite direct exposure to danger for the parts of his body.
