Webinar: How to mitigate your exposure to smoke particles

Learn how you can help reduce the risk posed by harmful chemicals on the fireground

The following is paid content sponsored by Dupont.

Firefighters face many risks on the fireground. Does existing PPE successfully protect firefighters from head to toe? Are some areas of the body more vulnerable to smoke particles and chemicals than others? Are there toxic substances being released from modern day fire grounds? What is the impact of these substances to firefighters’ health and wellbeing? Is there new technology which may protect firefighters from toxic smoke without sacrificing breathability?

Please join us Tuesday, October 4th at 2pm ET as we discuss the current risks, gaps in PPE, and solutions being developed to protect firefighters from the harmful effects of exposure to smoke particles.

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • What risk firefighters face on the fireground
  • Where firefighters are most vulnerable to smoke particles
  • How firefighters can mitigate the risks of this exposure
