Plymovent Discovers Getting a Grant to Protect Firefighters Becomes Easier

Cranbury, NJ—In 2012, the World Health Organization classified diesel engine exhaust as carcinogenic to humans (Group 1). This classification places diesel exhaust in the same deadly category as asbestos, arsenic, and tobacco. In a multiyear National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) study, initial findings (Phase I) of the NIOSH study suggest that firefighters are at higher risk of cancers of the respiratory, digestive, and urinary systems when compared to the general population. Firefighters exposure to diesel engine exhaust is one of the contributing factors for this higher risk of cancer.

Plymovent vehicle exhaust removal systems protect firefighters and emergency medical service (EMS) personnel from diesel engine exhaust. Grants, such as through the United States Department of Homeland Security Assistance to Firefighter Grants (AFG), are available to protect Firefighter and EMS personnel’s health and safety. Applying for a grant to get a Plymovent vehicle exhaust removal system doesn’t have to be complex. You can get support from independent grant writing services such as to provide personalized grant assistance for vehicle exhaust extraction systems under “Modification to Facilities.” Receive one-on-one service from a qualified Grant Consultant who provides free customized research, reviews grants prior to submission, and even offers grant writing services at exceptional rates.
