CAPR 62-1 Policy: All Safety Vests or Safety Apparel

worn by CAP members must meet the American

National Standards Institute, Inc (ANSI) Class 2 or Class

3 requirements. To ensure compliance with federal law,

CAP members must comply with this anytime duties

exposed them to public vehicular traffic such as directing

traffic, investigating crashes, handling lane closures,

obstructed roadways and disasters within the vehicle

traffic lanes.

The above photos were taken at three different distances to provide that picture

that is worth a 1000 words. ANSI Class 2 (or 3) safety vests or apparel is a

requirement for the above reason. CAP

s missions can vary and can be

unpredictable, but you can be prepared. Compliance is safety of life.

Examples of what approved safety apparel (Class 2 or 3) can give CAP members:

Greater visibility during inclement weather and at night

360-degree visibility; meaning wearer can be seen from all sides

Class III: Identifiable conspicuous body motions at a minimum of ¼ mile as a

person
