Winston-Salem (NC) Fire Department Debuts ‘Clean Cab’ Fire Apparatus

Fire department leaders announced the rollout of a “Clean Cab” fire truck, reports FOX 8.

After a fire, the crew will ride in the clean cab and any gear covered with toxic, cancer-causing chemicals will be stowed in a safe area in the back of the truck. The front of the truck is also made of material that’s easier to clean.

According to a national survey, from 2002 until 2019, cancer caused 66 percent of firefighter line-of-duty deaths.

The fire department is budgeting to buy two more fire trucks.
