Health Hazard Manual for Firefighters
Brown, Nellie J.
[Excerpt] Firefighters, as well as victims, can be exposed to a variety of toxic substances during a fire. Some of these toxicants are particularly insidious because they are produced by thermal decomposition before smoke makes a fire evident.
Preparation of this manual was funded by New York State School of Labor Grant #COO5413.
