why would they be used? fires give off plenty of light already, right?

i know they are called FIREfighters but i'm pretty sure they do more than that, they save people from ruins and stuff, where it's sometimes completely dark.

Well if they're fire fighters hopefully they'll be putting out the fires.

fire fighters also have rescue missions not necessarily related to fires...

Its not as much for lighting up the place as it is for identifying other firefighters and looking after one another, especially when the fire is blazing and smoke is thick, the glow in the dark colors will illuminate each fire fighter, making each one easier to find.

Plus firefighters don't just put out fires they are also called for other major disasters i.e Chemical spills, collapsed building, car crashes etc so it would be helpful for there other duties as firefighters.

To invent anything, you pretty much have to build an entire universe from scratch. Otherwise you're just putting things that already exist together.

"To produce or contrive (something previously unknown) by the use of ingenuity or imagination."
Did anyone know of the wheelbarrow before there was one?
No.
Did anyone know of glow-in-the-dark firefighter uniforms before they were used here?
Maybe. But, it doesn't rule it out.

they often have to work with their hands.. and i dont think flashlight on helmet is so practical... he can use both i guess.. and i dont think glowing firefighting tools are there to help him see, its to help other firefighters to see him.

Any first-responder knows that anything with electronics and/or batteries will fail you when you need it most. This stuff stays lit no matter what and makes them easily visible through smoke.

Real live fireman here. Let me hit you guys with some knowledge. The air tank on his back is a self contained breathing apparatus manufactured by a company named Scott. It is otherwise known as an air-pack or a Scott-pack. The tanks have come with glow in the dark bands on them for about 20 years ...aaaaaand they don't do a goddamn thing in a fire because you can't see the ******* anyway. Now if this guy invented tools that had strobe lights in them or sirens to tell you where the hell they are, then he would be onto something.

the department that i work for hads flashlights that you can put into a strobe and the PASS alarms on the SCBA are great for finding people.

but that strobe or lights of any type won't help for **** when the inversion layer hits the floor and you cant see your hand infront of your face
