About Us


Cancer is a terrifying, but unfortunately common diagnosis within the fire service. As firefighters, we are routinely exposed to a significant amount of carcinogenic chemicals and vapors every time we enter a fire environment or participate in fire related training. Over the years, this exposure potential has only increased as construction and home furnishings have evolved from wood, wool and cotton to synthetics and plastics which as we know are made from a wide array of chemicals and petroleum byproducts.

As these modern furnishings heat and burn, they off-gas the chemicals from which they are made – including benzene, formaldehyde and other carcinogens. Even by protecting our respiratory systems with positive pressure SCBA’s, we are not completely protected. Chemicals and Carcinogens adhere to our turnout coats, tools, cab seats and other equipment and we are still susceptible to absorbing these toxins through our skin and inhaling them as they continue to off gas. The invisible dangers that affect us long after we return to the station and even after we return home, can impact our members future health and even the health of their families.

Today’s firefighters are more than twice as likely to develop cancer as the average person. Research has determined that exposure to carcinogens, not only via respiratory absorption but also through skin absorption and inhalation of particles left on gear after the fire scene, can lead to firefighting related cancers. EDS is committed to helping reduce your member’s exposure to carcinogens by working with your Agency to offer the very best decontamination, disinfectant and cleaning solutions to fit your needs.
