Cancer is the leading line-of-duty cause of death in the fire service.
Countless established and ongoing studies continue to confirm the extent of the health risks encountered in the fire service. Firefighters are exposed to carcinogens both on the Fire Ground and at the Fire Station. Exposure occurs through Inhalation, Dermal Absorption and Ingestion.
Many departments struggle to find the funding to adequately combat these risks on an ongoing basis. It’s time to put the safety and health of our Firefighters first.
Encapsulator Technology aides in the fight against Firefighter cancer starting at the nozzle. This proactive approach is part of a necessary shift in thinking to continue to protect our brothers and sisters in the fire service and ensure safer working conditions for future generations.
