IBEW 1st District-Canada has partnered with Drifire, a manufacturer of FR clothing, and MWG Apparel—a Canadian work-wear manufacturer based in Winnipeg—to launch a program that, say the partners, gives electrical workers access to FR apparel and educates them on potential tax savings through government programs.

“It is with great pride that the IBEW is able to offer a national FR clothing program to all electrical workers,” said Phil Flemming, international vice-president, IBEW 1st District. “This program provides an excellent opportunity for individuals and smaller employers to purchase the best combination of FR protection, comfort and value at very reasonable costs.”

Information on the program was shared at the IBEW Annual All-Canada Progress Meeting in Saskatoon, Sask.

The garments offered through this program include a range of base layer and outerwear garments—all of which are made with Drifire.
