Usually they don’t wear fire-resistant clothing while on patrol in an ARV (Armed Response Vehicle), but they will wear them in certain scenarios.

1. Riots – Standard procedure due to the risk of molotov/improvised attack on people or vehicles. [This can be demonstrated on “Coppers”.](

2. CQB/Hostage rescue – If an officer is tasked to enter a CQB, the risk of molotov/incendiary attack is too great which warrants the use of the coveralls, the same as most special forces.

3. Terrorism – This covers the possibility of attack on high profile events such as the NATO summit, but also CBRN convoys or facilities such as nuclear power plants.

TL;DR – Don’t play with fire
