Exposure Tracking Standard Operating Procedure
Firefighter health and safety is the foremost important priority in the fire service. Firefighters regularly are put into situations both on emergencies as well as their daily activities that put them at a greater risk for injury and illness than the general population. Tracking exposures is one tool to both monitor toxic exposure as well as a tool to identify at risk personnel. Collecting objective information from both incidents and day-to-day activities in the fire service is critical.
