LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) -- Gwinnett County fire officials say the department will soon issue body armor for firefighters to wear during violent situations.<br />
Department spokesman Tommy Rutledge said in a statement that the need for protective equipment was brought up after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut and an internal review of response procedures during mass trauma situations.<br />
Several of the department's firefighters were also held hostage in a house in Suwanee in April 2013 by a man having financial problems who demanded that his cable and power be turned back on.<br />
Rutledge says the department has also bought trauma kits that include bulk bandaging supplies and tourniquets.
