Green Buffalow is honored to be serving those who serve us. We have been working in the background for you for years. Listening to needs and developing wildland fire gear with the best fit possible has been our goal. Also, we have been petitioning the NFPA, attending their meetings, and presenting our findings to them. We have done all this to try to help them create rules and regulations to allow for a better fit for firefighter uniforms for women and men. Please follow along with us on this journey. It's been quite a trip already... and we can't wait to see where this path leads!
