Total Decon Process

We understand that Cancer in the Fire Service is a concern that is only recently becoming a topic of conversation. While it has always been there, we are finally accepting the facts about the hazards that we expose ourselves to. We want to make sure that everyone goes home, and we are genuinely committed to helping you meet your goal not to track the fire home with you.

We have partnered with Responder Wipes and Solutions Safety Products. Responder Wipes are used primarily to aid in the cleaning and removal of soot, smoke and other potential carcinogens of complete and incomplete combustion. Solutions Safety Products is the manufacturer of CITROSQUEEZE and SC-14Ⓡ. CITROSQUEEZEⓇ Turnout Gear & PPE Cleaner is the leading technical detergent available in North America for the safe cleaning of oil, soot, grease, and other hydrocarbon contaminants from all types of PPE apparel and FR clothing. SC-14Ⓡ is a ready-to-use, all-purpose cleaner that is biodegradable, non-corrosive (near-neutral pH), environmentally safe and user-friendly. Next, with every unit we sell, we will be making a donation of $100.00, in the name of your choice, to the Carney Strong Initiative. We feel that with all of these great partnerships and groups efforts we can educate and mitigate the effects of cancer in the fire service.
