Invisible Danger: How to Utilize The Power Of Wireless Gas Detection to Identify And Reduce Toxic Exposure

In this presentation by Jason Krusen, learn how to use wireless gas monitoring to create a culture of detection and protection that allows you to know what’s in the smoke, assess and track the toxins in the fireground to protect first responders and mutual aid teams, and keep the community safer. Now you can get real-time threat detection information delivered wirelessly to Mobile Devices, in response vehicles, on the scene, at the station–really wherever you are: for fireground and incident response and in overhaul.

What You’ll Learn:

  • How to get real-time identification of fire smoke hazards and airborne toxins off of the truck.
  • How to take a pre-emptive approach to airborne toxin risk management.
  • Why you need to eliminate the “smoke eater” culture and improve longterm life and health – for your team and second-responders.
  • How you can increase productivity on the fireground and reduce stress and lower health risk using wireless gas monitoring.
  • Know where the responder is and what’s in the air where they are in a firefighter-down situation.
  • Whether it’s safe or OK to take your SCBA off.
  • How a wireless gas monitoring SOP reduces costs including hospitalization, rehab, and long-term illness risk.
