FIREFIGHTERS MATTER
From Covid-19 to Carcinogens – DECON Saves Lives

PROTECTING FIRST RESPONDERS IS OUR #1 PRIORITY

Firefighters face risks all the time, both seen and unseen. The obvious risks—fire, heat, smoke inhalation, and injuries due to structural damage—are well-known. One of the less obvious risks, exposure to toxic chemicals and the health effects that follow, can be one of the most devastating. A NIOSH report from 2013 showed that for firefighters, the risk of a cancer diagnosis is 9 percent higher, and the risk of dying from cancer is 14 percent higher than the general public. At the department level, the statistics appear even more bleak. The International Association of Fire Fighters states that 61 percent of line-of-duty deaths are related to cancer.


ANSWERING THE CALL – PROTECTING THE PROTECTORS

Emergency DECON Services is committed to providing the highest quality decontamination services and products to Emergency First Responders (Fire & EMS) and Law Enforcement Agencies. We are proud to have partnered with DECON7 and RedLine First Responder Gear Cleaning & Inspection to form a powerful alliance to safeguard and protect New York’s Bravest.


POWERFUL DECONTAMINANTS WITH DECON7

DECON7 is the leading standard in decontamination and safety for Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement and Military personnel. DECON7’s advanced formulations are versatile products that quickly and effectively decontaminates, detoxifies, neutralizes, and deodorizes firefighter turnout gear, apparatus interiors and equipment. DECON7’s EPA registered disinfectant is capable of killing up to 99.99999% of biologicals, viruses (Covid-19), bacteria and more. Using Decon7 products to decontaminate turnout gear, clean equipment, and launder clothing reduces the presence of hazardous chemicals more efficiently and effectively than scrubbing with detergent and water. Protecting firefighters from the long-term health effects of their jobs is a high priority, which is why it’s important to choose the most effective turnout-gear cleaning decontaminant available.
