Humpday Hangout: Focus on Firefighter Health and Safety

In this week’s Humpday Hangout, hosts Frank Ricci and P.J. Norwood talk to guest Gavin Horn about the University of Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) Research Center’s work on “Cardiovascular and Carcinogen Risks in Modern Firefighting.”

This study, conducted in partnership with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), will provide the first rigorous scientific study to quantify acute physiological disruptions, including thermal and cardiac strain, and exposure to products of combustion, in response to working in a realistic modern fire environment.
