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.
