Firehouse Supplement Highlights 10 Considerations for Reducing Firefighter Exposures

The UL Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) along with the Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) and the National Institute for Occupational Health and Safety (NIOSH) have published the new FIREHOUSE supplement 10 Considerations Related to Cardiovascular and Chemical Exposure Risks.

These considerations based on the groups' findings are broken into three categories:

  • Tactical Considerations Related to Occupant Exposure
  • Exposure Considerations for Outside and Overhaul Operations
  • Cleaning Decontamination Considerations after the Fire

Additionally, the supplement highlights fire service leaders describing common hurdles in pursuit of behavioral changes related to these topics and shares what is ahead for future studies.
