The mission of the Fire Smoke Coalition is to focus the required attention and resources on the deadly and life-long consequences of breathing fire smoke by teaching firefighters and first responders how to Prevent, Protect, Detect, Diagnose, and appropriately Treat the exposure if it occurs. The Coalition is comprised of firefighters and the medical community – all who embrace the challenge of teaching firefighters how to stay alive – and prevent the disease, illness and death associated with today’s deadly fire smoke.
With education ... comes change.
This web site will give you the opportunity to learn how and why changes are so critical to firefighters' lives and health. If your department has made changes relative to air management, PPE, atmospheric monitoring and/or rehab, please share those changes with the Coalition. Please email or call with resources you or your department may need from the Fire Smoke Coalition - or that you would like to share with other departments.
