TRAINING GUIDES

Understanding Fireground Threats, Risks, and PPE

There have arguably been fewer collections of material more sentinel to the evolution of safer firefighting and firefighter health/wellness than the three pieces presented in this Fire-Dex-sponsored training digest. Understanding the increased risk associated with the off-gassing of PPE post firefighting presents several opportunities to evolve our postfire activities and reduce toxic exposure. Gaining a greater understanding of how our PPE specification may be contributing to heat stress is critical to future modifications, designs, and fabric choices. Understanding heat stress as it relates to cardiovascular risks provides critical insight into prefire, firefighting, and postfire activities.
