Meet the World’s First Firefighter

The mighty rhinoceros is the world’s first firefighter. Legend has it the herbivore guarded its food reservoirs jealously. If fire ever threatened a stash of plants in its favor, the rhino would rush in and stomp out the flames.

That is how the rhino became the world’s first firefighter.

Found in movies and even pop culture like the longest running animated series, “The Simpsons,” the rhino has become synonymous with firefighting and toughness. The mighty pachyderm’s spirit returns to inspire the men and women who fight fires in today’s modern world.

The Rhino was the first to stamp out the flames and TenCate Protective Fabrics brings that same toughness to the world’s leading FR fabrics.

Find out why 70% of firefighters in the U.S. wear #RhinoTough textiles made by TenCate Protective Fabrics.
