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 and thermal protection while aiding in the reduction of heat stress and exposure to carcinogens.
We have an entire product development team dedicated to protecting you, head-to-toe, from occupational dangers such as fireground carcinogens and overexertion. By combining some of our newest, health-conscious innovations into an affordable package, we can help keep your department safe.
