Evaluation of CBRN Respirator Protection in Simulated Fire Overhaul Settings

This portion of the webinar will discuss a recent study that was designed to measure the protective capability of an air-purifying respirator (APR) with a chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) canister used during overhaul compared with the protection offered by a self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA).

The two presentations will be followed by a question and answer period.
