Firefighting Safety - solutions for firefighter health and safety from draeger

Firefighting Safety Solutions from Dräger

The rise of occupational cancer among Firefighters in recent years prompted several changes. Some behaviors — like letting soot and smoky grime stain gear — have started to fade. This evolution of the Fire Service is just beginning as we learn how to best protect the men and women on the fire ground.

Part of this evolution must include providing today’s Command Staff and Incident Commanders with more information on what’s happening on the Fire Ground.

Traditionally, industry has focused on individual products that provide some singular solution. 

Dräger recognizes the complexities of today’s Fire Ground and the multitude of incidents that require Firefighters to step into areas of increased risk both short- and long-term. Several Dräger products, when used in combination with one another, provide an unequaled level of safety and protection.

Dräger encompasses the collection of solutions that mitigate some of the dangers confronting Firefighters. Some dangers are immediate — fire, smoke, toxic gas, etc. Others cause a long-term harmful effect on First Responders — carcinogen particulates, chemicals, cardiovascular insult and damage, etc.
