IFCF Urges Firefighters to Reduce Exposure to Harmful Materials
Every time a firefighter enters a burning building, he or she is subjected to scores of carcinogens and other health hazards. Then they carry the toxins back to the station and even to their homes.
That’s a familiar scenario that members of the International Firefighter Cancer Foundation wants to change. The organization’s Virginia chapter held an April 7 seminar in Leesburg to highlight cutting-edge approaches to curbing the high rate of cancer among first responders. Read more here.
Efforts to improve the health and safety of First Responders continues with the launch of the IFCF Decontamination Matrix and the First Wash First Responder Decontamination Shower.
The Fire Service continues to identify the importance of prompt removal of harmful soot (toxins & carcinogens) from Personal Protective Equipment (P.P.E.) and one's body following a working
incident. The IFCF continues to research and provide solutions for reducing First Responder exposure to cancer-causing agents.
To see these efforts and more, visit the IFCF at FDIC International 2016 Booth #5363 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis!
