This is a sad reality for much of public safety. We spend so much time careing for others we forget to care about our own wellness. Help raise awareness...

Get in on the challenge, doesn't matter how many you get or how you do it, the goal is awareness to the issue!
CHECK IT OUT @traininginsight - Worried about Steaming the Victim?? Watch this video and let’s discuss why everyone is concerned about 212 degrees of moisture steam but not concerned with 300-1200 plus degrees Fahrenheit of heat!! Facts to consider when a firefighter fails to cool the environment: * At 131 Degrees Human Skin burns instantly (2nd Degree). * Once the heat source is applied to a victim, 35% of the burn damage occurs AFTER the heat source is removed**(See Stoll’s work on the Stoll Curve) * When Superheated areas are cooled, Steam WILL be produced but gases and heat will contract and LIFT off of the victim creating more chances for survival. * When superheated areas are NOT cooled, firefighter PPE begins to saturate with energy diminishing the thermal protective performance of their PPE if a flashover or a rapid fire development event occurred. * For every time 1 degree Fahrenheit is doubled Radiation increases exponentially by 4 Times!! •TPP: Thermal Protective Performance of even the best Fire year on the market will only protect us for a limited amount of time before we are injured if we fail to cool and own the space. * And Fire Training Dummy’s are not Indestructible (LOL)
