Why an Exposure Journal?
The Exposure Journal is something that we've wanted to build for a long time. Cancer is the number one killer of firefighters in the United States. If there is anything we can do to help, we want to do so! By tracking the data captured in a journal, we can use that data to:
- Help departments improve training
- Track the source of exposures for firefighters
- Gain insight into the nature of calls and the practice of firefighters on the fire ground
Our goal is to save lives with technology.
We could not have built the Exposure Journal without the collaboration of the Oregon Safety and Health Section division of the Oregon Fire Chiefs Association. They have been the driving force behind the entire effort.
