Protecting firefighters health

Washing bags that dissolve in the wash are the future in the “clean firefighter” project. Smoke, soot and asbestos particles etc. on clothes and quipment may be harmful for up to 24 hours after a fire. It creates one xtremely dangerous working environment, not just for the individual, but for all others It had to come into contact with that.
