Do You Respond To Fires? Read This FirefighterCloseCalls August 17, 2014 Firefighters routinely respond to incidents where the contents of a structure, car, or garbage can contain unknown hazards. On some of those incidents we discover the “bad stuff,” while others remain a mystery. That is until later in our lives, usually around retirement, we begin to suffer from the exposure through some type of cancer or other disease. Please! Use your all of your senses, including “good sense,” and be aware of the unknown hazards we face and practice effective exposure protection.
