Reduce Cancer Risk, Decon Your SCBA. Studies show that firefighters run a significantly higher risk of being diagnosed with, and dying from, various forms of cancer than the general population. This is due to the hazardous chemicals and carcinogenic particles they are exposed to in the line of duty. To reduce this exposure and the resulting cancer risk, it is essential to thoroughly, safely and efficiently clean and decontaminate all protective equipment after every use. That is exactly what the Solo Rescue® Decon Washer does. Cleaning gear in the Solo Rescue means less exposure to cancer causing PAH particles and a safer work environment for you and your fellow firefighters.
The Solo Rescue offers the easiest, quickest and safest way of cleaning contaminated SCBA’s, face masks, helmets, boots and gloves. You can choose between a 3 min cycle for gloves and boots or an 8 min cycle for SCBA’s, face masks and helmets. It has a capacity of cleaning up to 14 SCBA’s (including face mask), 56 face masks, 21 helmets, 60 boots and 120 pairs of gloves per hour. Make sure to follow your manufacturers washing instructions.
