H41 Interceptor Hood with DuPont Nomex Nano-Flex Technology

Posted by Firestation en 01/10/2016

fire-dex-h41-interceptor-hood

nomex nano flex

NFPA 1971 compliant hood, the H41 Interceptor™, designed to keep potentially carcinogenic particulates and other harmful contaminants off of firefighters’ jaws, faces, and necks;  areas identified as highly absorptive and more permeable than other areas of skin(1), and are likely not getting enough protection from hazardous particles with the FR knit hood technology that is currently available(2).

Fire-Dex will be donating $5 per hood to the Firefighter Cancer Support Network for every H41 Interceptor™ sold this week during FDIC.

The development of this hood was inspired by the reports referenced above; the Firefighter Cancer Support Network Report(1) and the FAST Test Report, Commissioned by the IAFF(2).  The first report stated that firefighters  have a “significantly increased risk… for a number of cancers, including multiple myeloma, nonHodgkin’s lymphoma and prostate and testicular cancer” (1).  This report also discussed that soot and smoke particles readily absorb and hold liquid and gaseous chemicals, that “soot has ultrafine particles that… [are] also absorbed through the skin traveling to most organs including the brain”(1), and that skin adsorption rate increases 400% with every 5°F increase in skin temperature. (1) The FAST Test Report demonstrated that particles at 2.5 micron size penetrated the standard FR knit hood (soot and smoke particles are usually 1 micron or less) and left a concentrated, heavy deposit on the subject’s neck, cheeks, ears and jaw.

The H41 Interceptor™ Hood was developed in collaboration with DuPont™, utilizing their revolutionary new material, DuPont™ Nomex® Nano-Flex, that can block fine particulates almost as well as an impermeable membrane.  Unlike FR moisture barrier membranes however, this new lightweight (0.8oz/yd2), “barely-there” material is actually completely breathable; Nomex® Nano-Flex is a non-woven, web technology, made of submicron continuous fibers.  The H41 Interceptor™ Hood is constructed with Nomex® Nano-Flex sewn between two layers of  6.0oz/yd2 PBI®/Lenzing to provide the maximum performance for particle barrier filtration, comfort, breathability, thermal protection and protection in flashover condition.  The H41 Interceptor™ is patterned to protect the integrity of the filtration system and uniquely designed to promote easy donning and doffing from the stowed position to the SCBA face piece channel.

The H41 Interceptor™ blocks 95% of particulates at .2 micron in size or larger.  For perspective, there are 25,4000 microns in one inch and a human hair is about 75-100 microns wide, so a .2 micron particulate is about 500x smaller than a strand of hair.  Testing has shown that the particulates sized at less than .2 microns don’t have enough mass to make it through the double layer knit and the Nomex® Nano-Flex; essentially meaning that this hood blocks 100% of particulates less than .2 microns.

This chart demonstrates the remarkable difference in particulate blockage from a standard FR Knit Hood to an FR Knit Hood with Nomex® Nano-Flex (measuring from 0.5 – 0.2 microns).

The air permeability of the Nomex® Nano-Flex is far superior to all FR moisture barrier films that others are offering.  Standard FR moisture barriers are a necessity in turnout gear, where gear can often get wet and such a membrane is necessary to prevent steam burns.  With bare skin being against the hood, and with the head and face generating considerably more sweat than most other areas of the body, breathability is an absolute must.  Using  Nomex® Nano-Flex instead of a standard FR moisture barrier greatly reduces the potential for heat stress.

NIOSH Study of Firefighters Finds Increased Rates of Cancer

A combined population of 30,000 firefighters from three large cities had higher rates of several types of cancers, and of all cancers combined, than the U.S. population as a whole, researchers from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and colleagues found in a new study.

The new findings are generally consistent with the results of several previous, smaller studies. Because the new study had a larger study population followed for a longer period of time, the results strengthen the scientific evidence for a relation between firefighting and cancer, the researchers said.

The findings were reported in an article posted on-line on Oct. 14, 2013, by the peer-reviewed journal Occupational and Environmental Medicine. The article is available online at http://oem.bmj.com/content/early/2013/10/14/oemed-2013-101662.full .

http://www.firefightercancersupport.org/wp-content/uploads/2013/10/NIOSH-Firefighter-Cancer-Study-w-Summary.pdf

The researchers found that:

  • Cancers of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems accounted mostly for the higher rates of cancer seen in the study population. The higher rates suggest that firefighters are more likely to develop those cancers.
  • The population of firefighters in the study had a rate of mesothelioma two times greater than the rate in the U.S. population as a whole. This was the first study ever to identify an excess of mesothelioma in U.S. firefighters. The researchers said it was likely that the findings were associated with exposure to asbestos, a known cause of mesothelioma.

The study analyzed cancers and cancer deaths through 2009 among 29,993 firefighters from the Chicago, Philadelphia, and San Francisco fire departments who were employed since 1950. The study was led by NIOSH in collaboration with the National Cancer Institute and the Department of Public Health Sciences in the University of California at Davis. The study was supported in part by funding from the U.S. Fire Administration.

Firefighters can be exposed to contaminants from fires that are known or suspected to cause cancer. These contaminants include combustion by-products such as benzene and formaldehyde, and materials in debris such as asbestos from older structures.

The findings of the new study do not address other factors that can influence risk for cancer, such as smoking, diet, and alcohol consumption. In addition, few women and minorities were in the study population, limiting the ability to draw statistical conclusions about their risk for cancer.

In a second phase of the study, the researchers will further examine employment records from the three fire departments, to derive information on occupational exposures, and to look at exposures in relation to cancer incidence and mortality. Those findings, when completed, will be published in a future article.

Hazmat Training 4.0

Posted by Firestation en 12/03/2014

Hazmat Training es un programa de entrenamiento que proporciona conocimientos sobre materiales peligrosos. El proposito del programa es ayudar al personal de los servicios implicados con una informacion basica sobre materiales peligrosos y tacticas para trabajar con ellos en situaciones de emergencia.

Con ello podra practicar con etiquetas y paneles, propiedades fisicas, niveles de proteccion, areas de riesgo y tacticas de actuacion que impliquen materiales peligrosos. Con este conocimiento el personal involucrado tiene mas opciones para enfrentarse y manejar situaciones en los que estan involucrados materiales peligrosos.

Podra hacer ejercicios, practicar con escenarios tacticos y realizar examenes para comprobar sus conocimientos.
