ABSTRACT

Evaluation of Chemical Exposures During Fire Fighter Training Exercises Involving Smoke Simulant   [open pdf - 3MB]

"We evaluated fire fighter trainers' chemical exposures and health effects during training exercises involving smoke simulant. Trainers could be overexposed to mineral oil mist, diethylene glycol, and thermal decomposition products. Wearing appropriate and fit-tested respiratory protection during training exercises should prevent eye and respiratory irritation and more serious acute respiratory effects."
