Fire Engineering Training Community

Where firefighters come to talk training

Hi...a year to two ago I remember running across a study done with brand new bunker gear...it was sampled before and after being exposed to products of combustion at a structure fire. If I remember right they found aver 40 hazardous chemicals/compounds on the exposed gear.
If you know about this please send me an email at johnb@plano.gov.
Thanks!

John, I'm working on gear for our dept right now, I'll check with some of the dealers I can trust, see what I find and I'll get back to you in the next couple days Brother! I'll see what I can get sent to me.

Stay Safe!
Jeff
