Extinguishing Firefighter Cancer!
1 out of every 3 Firefighters will be diagnosed with cancer and nearly 70% of line of duty deaths are cancer related*!
Standard firefighter hoods are commonly referred to as “cancer sponges” because they are made of terry cloth type that when wet can absorbs toxins that are in direct contact with a firefighter’s head and neck. This allows dangerous particles to easily enter the bloodstream through the thinnest skin on a firefighter’s body and puts them at greater risk of developing cancer. Particulate hoods, rather, are made of barrier materials, including both new particle filter layers as well as conventional moisture barriers, which shield firefighters from toxic particles.
Hoods For Heroes is committed to providing all Firefighters with the protective hoods that can help reduce head and neck exposure to carcinogens by 99%!
Firefighters risk their lives daily. Now, you can return the favor.
