Soot, ash, debris and smoke from fires often contain harmful chemicals and carcinogens. These toxins can remain on turnout gear and skin long after a fire call, putting firefighters’ health at risk.
- Major studies by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) have found a greater prevalence of cancer and cancer-related death among firefighters:
- 9% greater chance of cancer diagnosis
- 14% greater chance of cancer-related death
Best practices recommend that firefighters remove turnout gear and wash their hands, face and neck as soon as possible after a fire.
