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 Protect, Detect, Diagnose, and appropriately Treat the exposure if it occurs.
The Coalition is comprised of firefighters, scientists, physicians and subject matter experts, all of whom embrace the challenge of teaching firefighters how to protect themselves, to reduce exposures and ultimately minimize their risks to the diseases, illnesses and deaths associated with today’s deadly fire smoke.

When leadership fails, it is absolutely necessary for you to take every precaution possible to protect yourself from exposure. Start now.
