  • Gross decon / baby wipes

    Just wondering if any department here carries wipes, baby wipes or something similar on their rigs for your FFs to wipe soot, etc. from their faces, necks, etc after a fire or rescue. I recently attended the Natl Volunteer Fire Council training summit and picked up a free bag of Rescue Wipes...which got me thinking about putting wipes in our apparatus. Thanks!

      It has been recommended to avoid wipes with alcohol because of absorption through the skin.
      Crazy, but that's how it goes
      Millions of people living as foes
      Maybe it's not too late
      To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

        There were several vendors at the NY Chief's show hawking such products. I picked up a tube from one vendor - we'll see how it goes. We also have another brand at the station. Can't remember the name of either off-hand.

        While alcohol may be a factor to deal with, the key point is to do the decon, ASAP. Having them available on the apparatus will help ensure that happens.

        I'm involved with a support organization for FFs with cancer and other life-changing illnesses. One way we raise money is selling helmet decals of the organization's logo. I tell firefighters that buy them that not only does having the decal on their helmet show they support the organization, but should also serve as a reminder to keep their gear and themselves clean, as it is a major preventative measure.
        Opinions my own. Standard disclaimers apply.

        Everyone goes home. Safety begins with you.

          I'm assuming they make alcohol-free baby wipes...I'll have to look around. Thanks for the tip FyredUp

                      Here's the website for our northern NY organization:
                      https://www.believenny.com/

                      Believe 271 is the original organization from which Believe NNY was modeled.
                      https://www.believe271.com/

                      Believe 31 now covers the Syracuse area.
                      https://www.facebook.com/BELIEVE031/

                      There are other, larger cancer organizations in the fire service. The great part about these organizations is that we are helping our neighbors.

                      I'm not sure about Believe 31, but the other two were started as the result of one person each who was diagnosed with cancer and have grown from there. Those firefighters are still with us and are still very active in supporting the cause.
