Pa. rehab study looks at firefighter cooling devices
By Jess Eagle
ALLEGHENY COUNTY, Pa. — After putting out a fire in a burning building tomorrow, groups of firefighters from across the county will sit in lawn chairs, put on special vests and get into air-conditioned cars.
They will be participating in a study of cooling equipment designed to reduce the risk of sudden cardiac arrests, the leading cause of death in firefighters nationwide.
