Firefighters encounter multiple carcinogens, frequently at dangerous levels, and the danger doesn’t end when the job is done. Toxic molecules can accumulate after multiple incomplete cleaning attempts and build up over time. In fact, research has shown that the typical detergent/water extractor wash performed on firefighter’s PPE was found to be 15-40% effective in removing SVOCs and PAHs. ETD's innovative approach not only extends the life of the gear, its removal rate of fire ground toxins and carcinogens is more than double the amount of what is observed through traditional water-washing techniques.
