ChemProTM100 Protects Firefighters During Overhaul

The handheld Environics ChemProTM100 was developed for chemical warfare detection, and recent modifications to the unit allow it to identify additional chemical threats.  

The new overhaul library for the ChemProTM100 is designed to protect firefighters during the post-fire clean-up and investigation process.

While long considered less toxic than fire suppression work, overhaul activities represent their own risks for both acute and chronic toxic events, said company spokesperson Christopher Wrenn.

“CO and HCN sensors are not appropriate canaries for judging total toxicity in an overhaul environment,” he said.

The new ChemPro warns operators to mask up or exit the overhaul environment.
