- Topic: Your PPE questions, answered: Navigating evolving PPE changes and challenges
- Presenter: Jeffrey Stull, President of International Personnel Protection, Inc.
What are the most important factors for selecting turnout gear? How realistically does cleaning limit secondary exposures to fireground contaminants? What does the future of turnout clothing look like? PPE is one of the most critical – and complex – topics in firefighting. With ever-evolving information and research into toxic exposures, appropriate cleaning protocols and how long gear lasts, it’s easy to see why departments struggle to provide members consistent PPE guidelines.
In this webinar, which is sponsored by Homeland-Six, Jeffrey Stull answers top PPE questions to help firefighters stay safe on scene.
