Our department's respiratory policy includes air monitoring (4 gas) before removing our SCBA at structure fires. This has been a positive step forward from the days of "the smoke doesn't look bad anymore so I can take it off".
We are now researching doing additional monitoring for other gases (i.e. cyanide) as well as the use of APR's when appropriate and safe. Has anyone else tackled these topics?
I have also attached our department's respiratory protection policy in case it is of value to anyone. We will be updating it soon to include the Rule of Air Management.
