Personal hydration systems are ergonomically designed water bladders with carriers that can be worn individually or integrated with load-bearing equipment or web harness systems. These systems are used by responders to proactively maintain their hydration levels while operating in high-heat environments.
The Focus Group Report and Market Survey Report on Personal Hydration Systems are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
