Sonnier says they applied to get some Level 3-compliant coveralls that are reusable, and they are isolation coveralls so each firefighter will be able to be protected at all times. With these coveralls, each firefighter will be able to protect the public as well.

Each member of the department will be fitted with their own coveralls.
