Removing contaminants from the water used everyday at the Fire House is a critical part of protecting the health of all Firefighting personnel.
A team of engineers have designed a water filter for the pumper truck allowing the tank water to be used as clean water during and after the fire.
Having access to clean water on scene to remove the carcinogenic contaminants from Personal Protective Equipment after the fire is critical to help reduce the risk of serious health issues such as cancer.
During the course of knocking down a fire the firefighter’s personal protection equipment and gear becomes contaminated with soot, carcinogenic debris, chemicals omitting from the structure, and toxic fire suppression foam etc....
The firefighters use the water in the pumper trucks for much more than just knocking down fires. They also sometimes have to drink it:
The most basic of health defenses begin with access to clean water. Many firefighters are fighting the odds because cancer rates within the firefighter profession are increasing. Hidden contaminants are often found in local water sources.
The Fire House is where they cook, eat, sleep, shower, wash their clothes and uniforms, hold meetings, family gatherings and maintain all of the equipment for responding to any emergency.
Protecting the health of the firefighters inside the Fire House is just as important as protecting them from contaminants out in the field.
A team of Water Filtration Engineers from Clearbrook have developed a three stage water filter to remove contaminants from the Pumper Truck water, providing an effective solution to help the firefighters utilize the water for safer, more thorough on scene decontamination and consumption when necessary.
With the water filter in place, the Pumper Truck could be utilized in times of crisis as a mobile potable water unit.
Providing water filtration inside the Fire House is an important part of protecting firefighters beyond the fire. Having point of use water filtration installed for cooking, drinking, showers, laundry, water fountains, and water hoses will greatly increase the health of the firefighters on a long term basis.
Protecting the ones who protect us.
The goal of Operation Fire House is to have a water filtration system installed in every Fire House across the United States of America. Operation Fire House will be launched with the following team:
Protection from contaminants inside the Fire House are just as important as protection from contaminants out in the field.The Fire House is where they cook, eat, sleep, shower, wash their clothes and uniforms, hold meetings, family gatherings and maintain all of the equipment for responding to any emergency. Having point of use water filtration installed for cooking, drinking, showers, laundry, water fountains, and water hoses will greatly increase the health of the Fire Fighters on a long term basis.
