Descripción física: 9 p.
Notas: Sumario: Removal of respiratory protection during activities such as fire overhaul and wildland fire fighting can expose firefighters to unknown toxicants. The preliminary study indicates evidence to justify the needs for simultaneous monitoring of particulates (including ultrafines), aldehydes (formaldehyde, acrolein), and hydrocarbons (benzene) in addition to the CO levels, as they frequently exceed the exposure limits and lead to severe health issues in firefighters. This project will focus on developing prototypes of compact, highly sensitive, real-time particulate/gas detection systems to reduce the number of firefighter fatalities and injuries. The sensors will alert the firefighters of hazards in the air.
