Messenger, Lori ; Petrilli, Tony . 2004. Improved Face and Neck Shroud for Wildland Firefighters. 0451 2323. Missoula, MT: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Missoula Technology and Development Center. 2 p.

Describes a new face and neck shroud the Missoula Technology and Development Center developed to protect wildland firefighters from radiant heat. Hook and loop fasteners attach the shroud to the firefighters' hardhat. The shroud is intended only for temporary protection during entrapments or when leaving areas after the fire has flared up suddenly. The shroud should not be used at other times because it prevents the body from cooling and also prevents firefighters from feeling just how hot the fire really is.
