Paul Erickson, FAIA will be presenting “HOT ZONE Design: Reducing Cancer in Firefighters” at Fire Rescue International 2017, Thursday, July 27th from 3:30 pm – 5 pm. HOT ZONE Design has taken root and is changing the fire industry. After advocating awareness of cancer in firefighters and developing a system of categorizing spaces by risk within the fire station based on exposure to toxic chemicals and carcinogens, Mr. Erickson has continued to advance fire station designs by including enhanced decontamination protocols and spaces within new and renovated stations.
This presentation will provide an overview of HOT ZONE Design strategies to refresh those who are familiar and orient newcomers to the concepts, and will illustrate the expanded recommendations for decontamination of equipment and personnel.
