“Our goal at First Responder Decon is to combat the cause of exposure related issues amongst all of our first responders.
When I started looking at cancer and toxin mitigation for my department years ago a few staggering facts stuck out to me but one above all completely shocked me. Our bunker gear does a good job of limiting our exposure while in the fire but more than 85% of our toxic exposure after a fire incident comes from the gear itself! It has also been found that gear can continue to off-gas and create exposures up to 72 hours and contact exposures weeks and even months after and incident. We have also learned that the route of exposure is predominantly absorption.
At Firstrespondersdecon.com, our mission is to not only provide the best tools in firefighter decon but a portion of all proceeds will be going to fund charities to help support our brothers and sisters that are currently fighting the battle with firefighter related health issues.”
