Dirty Gear Isn't Cool, It's Dangerous

Contaminated protective gear exposes firefighters to potentially life-threatening chemicals, biological agents and particulate matter. If not dealt with properly, soiled protective gear can also pass on contaminants to the public at large. The key to limiting a firefighter's exposure to such hazards is proper decontamination of soiled gear, which after a fire, car accident or similar event, can be laden with life-threatening chemicals, blood, body fluids or particulate matter.
