    This seems to help with my radio/pacemaker issues.

    It's entirely possible their served agency requires them to wear the vests so they know who they are.

    Obviously a posed picture, but again, maybe the Red Cross requires them to wear hard hats. You don't know unless you're there.

    For its faraday properties, no doubt.

    Hey that's not just for lightning strikes! That's shielding your brain from the harmful effects of RF energy! Remember....a brain is a terrible thing to baste.

    I wear the orange vest only when required by race sanctioning bodies. It really doesn't do anything for my complexion

    Most EOC's will have vests for identifying roles/function, like "ESF 2" which is communications. None of the vests I have seen are hi-viz type - they are usually beige or similar.

    Why anyone would need a hi-viz vest while sitting in a room, inside a building, is beyond me.
