Respiration Protection for Firefighters During Overhaul Operations

The Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology Directorate is working with TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) to develop a respirator system specifically for use during overhaul operations. The system will be used instead of an SCBA or dust mask, and will provide firefighters with respiratory protection against both chemical vapor and particulate hazards.
