    Fair. Such as amp reading with clamp on meter.

    I carry hot gloves, helmet with face shield, and long sleeve FR shirt on the truck. All category 1. I put them on when I feel endangered such as when pulling a meter. If I have to wear category 2 and above, find yourself another boy. I'm not taking any chances this close to retirement.

    I forgot to mention that I purposely wear a uniform shirt that is all cotton. It was extreme difficult to find a uniform shirt that wasn't some percentage of polyester which as we know will melt to your skin if you are exposed to an arc flash. Safety first. (My eyeglasses are safety rated, too)
