(October 29, 2015) View our new Tailboard Safety Tip that focuses on Cancer Prevention: Clean your PPE after a fire. Have a discussion about your department’s safety and risk management processes and when you're done, keep the conversation going on Twitter by using #TailboardSafety.
The Firefighter Cancer Support Network suggests cleaning your personal protective equipment (PPE), including gloves, hood and helmet immediately after a fire.
Discuss the following:
- Do you attempt to clean your PPE, gloves, hood and helmet immediately and thoroughly after a fire?
- If yes, discuss successes or challenges
- If no, what needs to be done to clean your PPE, gloves, hood and helmet immediately and thoroughly after a fire?
