Structural Firefighting (Post monitoring)

In the name of fire fighter safety:

It has been recommended that all structure fires should be air monitored after knockdown and prior to any overhaul operations. Monitoring for HCN and CO should be performed where crews are operating and SCBA’s should be worn until the atmospheric readings are below your departments established save levels. In addition to monitors equipped with HCN and CO sensors, O2 sensors can indicate oxygen deficient atmospheres where a toxic or non-toxic gas (asphyxiant) is displacing the oxygen and a monitor equipped with a PID (Photo Ionization Detector) can be used for the nonspecific quantification of VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) thereby greatly increasing the number of gases that can be detected.  Don't forget - Monitoring in a post fire atmosphere should not discontinued once the desired readings are observed - monitoring should be ongoing until personnel are no longer required to operate in the target area.

We have many options to suit the needs and budgets of your department.
