Statistics have shown the risks firefighters face in their line of duty, especially as it relates to cancer and heat stress. Unfortunately, job-related exposure to carcinogens and other fire-ground toxins is a reality, but there are a few things your department can do to lessen contamination and the effects of long-term exposure.
First and foremost, we collectively need to stop looking at fire gear as a product and begin to look at it as a solution. A solution to provide flame resistance, thermal protection, and contaminant filtration; a solution to aid in the reduction of heat stress and exposure to carcinogens.
Fire-Dex has an entire product development team dedicated to protecting you, head-to-toe, from occupational dangers such as fireground carcinogens and overexertion. They have combined some of their newest, health-conscious innovations to help keep you and your department safe.
