EMC provides fire departments with a full service solution for PPE, and Turnout Gear. Providing customized solutions to Gear Repair, and Preventative Maintenance. EMC allows fire departments to effectively and efficiently manage the safety of their personnel through the first line of defense.
EMC has been certified by UL as an Independent Service Provider (ISP). This prestigious designation
ensures that EMC cleans, inspects and repairs PPE gear to the NFPA 1851 standard; the provision for
maintaining Structural Fire Fighting ensembles.
Damaged PPE gear will continue to deteriorate if ignored. Delaying repairs will not only open your firefighters to preventable health and safety exposures, but could have a significant financial impact on a departmental budget, should the gear eventually be deemed irreparable.
Extensive research has been conducted that proves the correlation between ill-maintained turnout gear and increased potential for job-related cancers. The following organizations have cooperatively developed plans to reduce the potential of post-fire carcinogen absorption:
-The Firefighter Cancer Support Network
-The International Association of Firefighters
-The International of Fire Chiefs
-The National Volunteer Fire Council
In addition, the United States Fire Administration has shown an increase in the amount, and intensity, of burn related injuries due to improper PPE gear maintenance.
