Emerging research supports that skin decontamination after exposure to smoke and other products of combustion is an important step in reducing the risk of occupational cancers in the fire service. This program takes that idea and applies a tested framework for encouraging behavioral change that will allow departments to consider the many steps and variables in creating and implementing a successful program. From removing PPE to cleaning skin to not cross-contaminating apparatus, this program will help you map out a successful program for your department.
