1,000,000 Certified Wildland Garments

By Steven Kulibaba | August 15, 2022 |

In July 2022, a significant milestone was reached for Stewart & Heaton Clothing Co. Pty Ltd (S&H) to manufacture it’s one millionth Certified Wildland Firefighting Garment. This milestone is essential not only for S&H but also for the Certified Products Program adopted by the Australasian Fire & Emergency Services sector. The journey to this milestone began many years ago, according to S&H’s Managing Director, Simon Stewart. “When we first started working with fire and land management agencies in the early 1990s, firefighters were essentially wearing yellow coloured cotton mechanics one-piece coveralls. It was thought back then that 100% cotton was all that was required to keep a firefighter safe. These garments did not contain any flame retardant properties, and there were no industry standards that advised otherwise.

Stewart and Heaton were delighted to host Joe Szakacs, the South Australian Minister for Police.
