SOLO RESCUE® – CLEAN GEAR IN A FEW MINUTES. The Solo Rescue cleans SCBAs and protective gear of residue from combustion gases, soot particles and other toxins in just a few minutes. It can clean steel, composite, rubber, fabric, plastic, etc. all in a mechanical, self contained process.
CONTAMINATED GEAR IS A CONSTANT HEALTH RISK. The SCBA (Self Contained Breathing Apparatus) and protective gear are a lifeline for firefighters in their daily work of saving the lives of others. When fighting a fire, soot particles and combustion gases are absorbed by the protective gear. This contamination then poses a health risk to the firefighter. Therefore it is important to decontaminate the protective gear immediately upon return to the station.
CLEANING BY HAND IS TIME CONSUMING, HARD WORK AND POSES A HEALTH RISK. Cleaning contaminated gear by hand takes time (about 30 minutes/set) and is hardly what you want to be doing after a demanding operation in the field. Cleaning by hand also means that the crew is yet again exposed to the residues from combustion gases, soot particles and toxins. Only this time, unprotected. Studies have shown that prolonged exposure to these toxins put firefighters at greater risk of developing cancer than other professional groups. Establishing procedures to handle contaminated gear in a controlled and safe way is one way of minimizing this risk.
