The Dangers of Our Turnout Gear
So, here we are. We're firefighters. Some of us are career, some of us a volunteer, part-pay, paid-on-call and/or wildland. No matter which, when we respond to a fire call, we don all our PPE, turnout gear, boots, hood, gloves, etc. Right? Right!
As many of us already know, this gear that is meant to protect us, may be making us sick or even killing us, due to the industry-wide use of PFOS/PFOA used in the waterproofing of the middle layer of our gear.
With that in mind, I recommend you read the article in the link below, from the "Law & Crime" website.
