Hello Smart Firefighting Community!

This firefighter's equipment uses better tech than most fire departments to keep him safe from carcinogens...

Welcome to another episode of covering real world innovations via interviews with fire service and technology industry experts that empower YOU to develop your very own Smart Firefighting strategy!

In this episode:

- Why are firefighters' current gas detection meters not enough?

- What is a CAFS and why does the Class A foam differ?

- What is the science behind this better equipment?

Let's hear from the Deputy Fire Chief who has taken on the National Fire Academy's research himself Gary Baum. After Baum left the Academy's Executive Fire Officer Program as first in his class, he felt called to continue their efforts on fire ground carcinogen testing and reduction since he believes it can make a difference in firefighter health and safety while also applying his background knowledge in chemistry and physics stemming from his science teaching days.

On top of his research, Baum is Deputy Fire Chief of Reddick Community Fire District in Illinois, a Field Instructor with the Illinois Fire Service Institute, an instructor at FIRE LLC, and has been with Fox Valley Career Center for almost 25 years as the Fire Science Program Lead Instructor.
