FIRE, SMOKE COALITION PRESENTATION AT FDNY FIRE ACADEMY
On Wednesday, January 31, 2018, at 1100 hours, the Fire, Smoke Coalition will make a presentation at the FDNY Fire Academy. The objectives of this presentation are to focus attention on and discuss related resources to address the deadly and life-long consequences of our exposure to fire and smoke. This presentation will review how to Prevent, Protect, Detect, and Diagnose exposures. This presentation will also discuss firefighter rehabilitation and medical monitoring using the Masimo RAD-57 handheld Pulse CO-Oximeter, as well as our routine exposures that are often overlooked and often underestimated. The content of this presentation is directly related to a Department initiative targeted to enhancing on-scene and post-fire operations rehabilitation and contamination reduction practices. All off-duty members are invited to attend. For additional information, email DC Joseph Jardin at Joseph.Jardin@fdny.nyc.gov.


Fraternally,
