Think about a typical fire call.
You throw on your structural turnouts, rush to the scene and take every action necessary to rescue those in need.
Now think about your return trip to the station.
You restock the truck, jump in the cab and immediately get toned out to another emergency.
Did you stop to think about the contaminants on your gear and where they spread throughout your journey?
Though firefighting is a rewarding profession, recent studies have unveiled the true dangers firefighters face in their line of duty. Reports published by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reveal daunting statistics about job-related exposures and the probability of firefighters developing a chronic illness, such as cancer or heart disease. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) confirmed this concern with a study that concluded firefighters are 9% more likely than the general public to be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime and face a 14% increase in cancer-related deaths.
Job-related exposure to carcinogens is a reality, so what is the solution?
CHANGE THE STATISTIC. CHANGE THE WAY YOU THINK ABOUT YOUR GEAR.
DEFEND YOURSELF WITH THE INTERCEPTOR PACKAGE™
Since toxins in smoke can be easily absorbed into skin and heavy turnouts can increase heat stress, it is important to wear gear that works for you-not against you!
Fire-Dex has an entire product development team dedicated to protecting you, head-to-toe, from immediate and long-term occupational dangers such as fireground carcinogens and overexertion. Our Interceptor Package is testament to that commitment.
