RESEARCH STUDIES & RESULTS

Fluorescent Aerosol Screening Test (FAST)

The IAFF FAST test, performed on January 6, 2015, was completed to illustrate which areas of a firefighter's skin are most vulnerable to the exposure of submicron particles while in a typical house fire, some of which can contain carcinogenic properties and have long-term effects on firefighters' health.

The images to the right show the exposure points of a firefighter wearing standard turnouts after 30 minutes within an isolated chamber, filled with fluorescent aerosol "dust" and meant to emulate a fireground. A black light (UV) was used to illuminate the particles that penetrated the gear and found their way to the absorbent skin around the face and neck.

FAST-TEST-01

This test was one of the first indications that a culture change was needed in the fire manufacturing industry and carcinogen protection was a necessity to improve the future of first responder health and safety.

In response, Fire-Dex produced the H41 Interceptor™ particulate blocking hood, which not only addresses the concerns of carcinogenic particles, but also minimizes heat retention, a common complication found in many particulate barrier hood on today's market.
