Medical studies indicate that firefighters have a much higher risk of contracting cancer than the general population. Due to the nature of the profession, firefighters are constantly exposed to many harsh chemicals, toxins and carcinogens. These contaminants penetrate the protective clothing and are eventually absorbed by the skin. The most permeable piece of personal protective equipment is the hood. Hoods are designed to protect our head and neck from heat but are not designed to stop skin absorption through the forehead, angle of the jaw, the neck and throat.
The longer firefighters are exposed to contaminants, the greater the hazard to their health. If turnout gear is not properly maintained, exposure is much greater and more constant as the toxins and carcinogens continue to off-gas actively reducing exposure levels can reduce these high risks.
A comprehensive cleaning, decontamination and inspection program for turnout gear on a regular basis can minimize these health risks
