Where firefighters come to talk training

Three Firefighters have Died Since January 1

Since January 1, 2010, we've lost three firefighters. All suddenly and unpectedly collapsed - under the age of 51 and in good physical "shape". While we at the CPTC believe HCN in fire smoke is a significant contributor to heart-related deaths, we of course cannot state with certainty that these firefighters were victims of fire smoke. What we can state as factual is that HCN chips away at the heart and brain with every exposure to smoke. We're starting to see a small movement among departments who are beginning to grasp the importance of protecting their firefighters. If you haven't participated in the CPTC's training programs, go to Check out the Forum where you will find training opportunities, and information relative to Awareness, Prevention, Prevention, Detection, Diagnosis and Treatment. The key is to not need treatment! Wear your air!
