Exposure to chemical and biological contaminants on the fireground is an increasing concern for long-term fire fighter health. Cancer and other diseases resulting from continued exposures has become a leading concern for the fire service. This is presumed to be associated with fireground exposures relating to protection/hygiene practices and persistent harmful contamination found in fire fighter equipment, apparatus carrying that equipment, and stations were the equipment resides. This webinar will address the campaign for fire service contamination control to develop and facilitate the outreach of an awareness campaign to control the spread of harmful fire ground contaminants, ultimately in support of improved fire fighter long-term health.
Who will benefit: Fire service, emergency managers, incident commanders, training directors, equipment providers, researchers
