    fire rescue carbon monoxide poisoning levels safety



    Fire and Rescue personnel today face higher levels of danger performing their duties than they did several years ago. Understanding carbon monoxide is especially crucial to today’s fire service, because the smoke that firefighters were exposed to 20 or 30 years ago is not the same as it is today. Carbon monoxide attaches to the oxygen molecules in the body, preventing oxygen from reaching vital organs, which will cause you to suffocate after a short period of time.  

    On average, we lose 100 firefighters a year, although that number has dropped slightly in recent years. Cardiac-related fatalities are still the number one cause of death in the fire service, with traumatic injuries number two, followed by asphyxiation. The key point, and the part that you need to remember, is that not all carbon monoxide related fatalities are caused by asphyxiation. Many cardiac-related fatalities that we’re experiencing may very well be related to carbon monoxide exposure as well. What Sensorcon offers is a self-contained carbon monoxide Meter that can be attached to the Firefighters turnout gear that is viewable while using a SCBA.

    1. Sensor Inlet - Featuring a 200ppm range ​with an extended range of up to 2000ppm to detect all levels of carbon monoxide while performing duties on the job including overhaul.                                                                                                                        
    2. Visual Alarm - Featuring LED lights with a vibration mode. This is to let the emergency worker know when the alarm set points are reached. It is factory set to 35ppm low and 200ppm high, but can easily be adjusted to suit various needs.                                                                                                                                                                    
    3. LCD Screen - Featuring a LCD / LED real time display that is viewable when wearing a SCBA. All features and modes are located on it.                                                                                                                                    
    4. Audible Buzzer - The audible alarm reaches 80 to 85db. Slightly quieter than P.A.S.S. Alarms.                                                                                                                                                  
    5. Max Mode and Mute Buttons - Max Mode displays when the maximum carbon monoxide level you are exposed to when switched on. The Mute function allows the emergency worker to silence the audible alarm feature.
