Changes made to reduce cancer risk for Maryland firefighters

Jacob Oursler, Howard County Department of Fire and Rescue Services firefighter recruit, places his self-contained breathing apparatus on a slide out compartment as he shows off the new “clean cab” engine at Merriweather Fire Station, Station 14 in Columbia, Md. Contaminated gear is stored in an area apart from where the firefighters sit, reducing their exposure to carcinogens.
