The recognition of carcinogens remaining on personal protective equipment (PPE) has resulted in a structured cleaning approach for potentially contaminated kit in Fire and Rescue Services but what about the person wearing this PPE?
Global studies have demonstrated that fire fighters are facing the risk to develop cancer. If there is continuous exposure through a failure to properly clean off contaminants the risk is even higher.
The Better After Fire Wipe is for use on scene.
Frequently Asked Questions
Why do firefighters need the Bullard Better After Fire Wipe?
Cancer is the number 1 killer of firefighters. *
Our skin absorbs around 400 percent more pollutants with every 5°C rises in temperature. Therefore, firefighters are exposed to unique health risks both during and after a call. The sooner you minimize these risks, the better. Ideally, you should not only clean and decontaminate your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other gear immediately, but also your face, neck, hands, and other skin areas on which bacteria and carcinogens, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), can settle.
You can reduce contamination directly on-scene, gently, and without drying out your skin. The effectiveness of the Bullard Better After Fire Wipe for first responders has been scientifically tested and proven.”
