Recent studies show daunting statistics about firefighters developing cancer while on the job or years after retirement. In fact, firefighters are 29% more likely to contract cancer in their lifetime than the general public. Additionally, it is well known that the number one cause of Line Of Duty Deaths (LODDs) is heat stress.
At Fire-Dex, we know this and we are committed to keeping firefighters safe - today and tomorrow. Our products are designed and engineered to not only protect firefighters from immediate hazards but also to help address the long-term health risks associated with cardiovascular failures and exposure to carcinogens.
Defend Yourself With the Interceptor Package™
This package features PPE to combat both the number one (Cancer) and number two (Heat Stress and Cardiac Fatigue) causes of firefighting related deaths. Our particulate barrier H1 Interceptor Hood reduces exposure to harmful carcinogens that are known to be absorbed through the highly permeable skin on the jawline, throat and neck. TECGEN® PPE is a dual-certified single layer garment that provides protection against both heat stress and repeated exposure to harmful carcinogens residing on turnout gear. By using this gear for non-fire related calls, the life of turnout is extended. Finally, our top of the line custom FXR turnout gear is lighter in weight and features our Active Posture Design (APD), minimizing stress and cardiac fatigue when fighting fires. Bundled together in one economical package, this trifecta is the best defense for firefighter health.
