In this month's FireRescue1 Rehab eNews, our experts cover the persistent issue of PPE protection and exposure. Bruce Evans discusses how skin plays a role in firefighter rehab.

Jay MacNeal points out the importance of keeping tabs on abnormal vital signs after calls, and how firefighters should always follow up with their physicians during such an event.

Lastly, Charles Bailey breaks down how one fire department was able to reduce firefighter overhaul risks by using simple tools and processes.
