A glove is not just a glove. There are so many out there that are for pathogens but are so thin that 10% are ruined just by putting them on. Then the EMS guys double glove with the often failed hope that they do not get holes in them.

At the FD the Chief finally decided it is cheaper to buy the more expensive gloves. Less waste and less cost due to decreased exposurere to pathogens. Remember a exposure could be a death sentence.
