Health and Safety Risks
Firefighters face serious health risks every day. Battling flames, heat, mental and physical stress, high levels of carbon monoxide and other toxic elements. Additionally firefighters face a higher risk for many diseases, including heart disease, stress, chronic respiratory illnesses, Hepatitis B and C, and an increased risk of cancers. Firefighters have a 60% chance of dying from cancer compared to 20% for the rest of the population.
This risk is with the special design of turnout gear to protect firefighters. To minimize the risk to our everyday heroes we are proud to offer the right equipment to clean and decontaminate your PPE.
