Firefighter PPE: How Clean is Clean?

Recent changes to NFPA 1851 are intended to address the question, “how clean is clean for fire fighter PPE?”

New standard requirements aim to evaluate the cleaning processes employed by local departments. Whether a department conducts their own cleaning or utilizes an outside vendor, NFPA 1851 provides guidelines on evaluating the effectiveness of these cleaning efforts.

This webinar will discuss the risks associated with contaminated PPE and the new guidelines incorporated into the standard.
