ICP uptake shows steady progress
In the year since last September, the interest in, and uptake of, the products and services provided under the ICP has continued to develop. During this period, responsibility for managing the Integrated Clothing Project transferred from Firebuy to DCLG in April this year.
Some 6,100 firefighters are now equipped with ICP PPE, with this number expected to increase by around 1000 within the coming year. 1 in 8 firefighters are now regularly wearing ICP PPE for their personal protection and 1 in 6 are wearing either PPE or station wear or both.
