Surface water operations protective dry suits provide protection by preventing or limiting the user's exposure to cold water and contaminants. They are used by specially trained responders conducting search and rescue operations in fresh and swift water and marine environments.
The Focus Group Report, Market Survey Report, and Assessment Report on Surface Water Operations Protective Dry Suits are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on the First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
