Surveillance of morbidity during wildfires--Central Florida, 1998. (1/612)

Several large wildfires occurred in Florida during June-July 1998, many involving both rural and urban areas in Brevard, Flagler, Orange, Putnam, Seminole, and Volusia counties. By July 22, a total of 2277 fires had burned 499,477 acres throughout the state (Florida Department of Community Affairs, unpublished data, 1998). On June 22, after receiving numerous phone calls from persons complaining of respiratory problems attributable to smoke, the Volusia County Health Department issued a public health alert advising persons with pre-existing pulmonary or cardiovascular conditions to avoid outdoor air in the vicinity of the fires. To determine whether certain medical conditions increased in frequency during the wildfires, the Volusia County Health Department and the Florida Department of Health initiated surveillance of selected conditions. This report summarizes the results of this investigation.  (+info)

Consumer hazards of plastics. (2/612)

The modern consumer is exposed to a wide variety of plastic and rubber products in his day to day life: at home, work, school, shopping, recreation and play, and transport. A large variety of toxic sequellae have resulted from untoward exposures by many different routes: oral, dermal, inhalation, and parenteral. Toxic change may result from the plastic itself, migration of unbound components and additives, chemical decomposition or toxic pyrolysis products. The type of damage may involve acute poisoning, chronic organ damage, reproductive disorders, and carcinogenic, mutagenic and teratogenic episodes. Typical examples for all routes are cited along with the activites of Canadian regulatory agencies to reduce both the incidence and severity of plastic-induced disease.  (+info)

Chemistry and toxicity of flame retardants for plastics. (3/612)

An overview of commercially used flame retardants is give. The most used flame retardants are illustrated and the seven major markets, which use 96% of all flame-retarded polymers, are described. Annual flame retardant growth rate for each major market is also projected. Toxicity data are reviewed on only those compositions that are considered commercially significant today. This includes 18 compounds or families of compounds and four inherently flame-retarded polymers. Toxicological studies of flame retardants for most synthetic materials are of recent origin and only a few of the compounds have been evaluated in any great detail. Considerable toxicological problems may exist in the manufacturing of some flame retardants, their by-products, and possible decomposition products.  (+info)

Toxicity of combustion products from burning polymers: development and evaluation of methods. (4/612)

Laboratory and room-scale experiments were conducted with natural and synthetic polymers: cotton, paper, wood, wool, acetate, acrylic, nylon, and urethane. Smoke and off-gases from single materials were generated in a dual-compartment 110-liter exposure chamber. Multicomponent, composite fuel loads were burned within a 100 m(3) facility subdivided into rooms. In chamber experiments, mortality depended on the amount of material burned, i.e., fuel consumption (FC). Conventional dose (FC)/mortality curves were obtained, and the amount of fuel required to produce 50% mortality (FC(50)) was calculated. With simple flame ignition, cotton was the only material that produced smoke concentrations lethal to rats; FC(50) values for cotton ranged from 2 g to 9 g, depending on the configuration of the cotton sample burned. When supplemental conductive heat was added to flame ignition, the following FC(50) values were obtained; nylon, 7 g; acrylic, 8 g; newsprint, 9 g; cotton, 10 g; and wood, 11 g. Mortality resulting from any given material depended upon the specific conditions employed for its thermal decomposition. Toxicity of off-gasses from pyrolysis of phosphorus-containing trimethylol propane-polyurethane foams was markedly decreased by addition of a flame ignition source. Further studies are needed to determine the possible relevance of single-material laboratory scale smoke toxicity experiments. Room-scale burns were conducted to assess the relative contributions of single materials to toxicity of smoke produced by a multicomponent self-perpetuating fire. Preliminary results suggest that this approach permits a realistic evaluation of the contribution of single materials to the toxicity of smoke from residential fires.  (+info)

House fire injury prevention update. Part I. A review of risk factors for fatal and non-fatal house fire injury. (5/612)

OBJECTIVE: To summarize house fire injury risk factor data, using relative risk estimation as a uniform method of comparison. METHODS: Residential fire risk factor studies were identified as follows: MEDLINE (1983 to March 1997) was searched using the keywords fire*/burn*, with etiology/cause*, prevention, epidemiology, and smoke detector* or alarm*. ERIC (1966 to March 1997) and PSYCLIT (1974 to June 1997) were searched by the above keywords, as well as safety, skills, education, and training. Other sources included: references of retrieved publications, review articles, and injury prevention books; Injury Prevention journal hand search; government documents; and internet sources. When not provided by the authors, relative risk (RR), odds ratio, and standardized mortality ratios were calculated, to enhance comparison between studies. RESULTS: Fifteen relevant articles were retrieved, including two case-control studies. Non-modifiable risk factors included young age (RR 1.8-7.5), old age (RR 2.6-3.6), male gender (RR 1.4-2.9), non-white race (RR 1.3-15.0), low income (RR 3.4), disability (RR 2.5-6.5), and late night/early morning occurrence (RR 4.1). Modifiable risk factors included place of residence (RR 2.1-4.2), type of residence (RR 1.7-10.5), smoking (RR 1.5 to 7.7), and alcohol use (RR 0.7-7.5). Mobile homes and homes with fewer safety features, such as a smoke detector or a telephone, presented a higher risk of fatal injury. CONCLUSIONS: Risk factor data should be used to assist in the development, targeting, and evaluation of preventive strategies. Development of a series of quantitative systematic reviews could synthesize existing data in areas such as house fire injury prevention.  (+info)

Estimating the proportion of homes with functioning smoke alarms: a comparison of telephone survey and household survey results. (6/612)

OBJECTIVES: This study determined the proportion of homes with functioning smoke alarms in a low-income area experiencing a high rate of residential fire-related injuries. METHODS: An on-site survey of households was conducted to confirm the results of a telephone survey. RESULTS: In the telephone survey, 71% of households reported having functioning smoke alarms. In the household survey, 66% of households reported having functioning alarms; however, when the alarms were tested, the percentage dropped to 49%. CONCLUSIONS: Telephone surveys may overestimate the presence of functioning smoke alarms in some populations. Thus, the use of telephone surveys to establish baseline measures could significantly affect the evaluation of smoke-alarm giveaway programs.  (+info)

Lessons learnt from a factory fire with asbestos-containing fallout. (7/612)

BACKGROUND: Fallout containing asbestos from a factory fire at Tranmere, Wirral, England, landed on a highly populated urban area with an estimated 16000 people living in the area worst affected, which included a shipbuilding community. There was considerable public concern over the health impact of the acute environmental incident, and great media interest. METHODS: A descriptive study was carried out of the acute environmental incident and its management, and the difficulties encountered. RESULTS: Practical lessons learnt include need for: increased fire-fighter awareness of potential adverse health effects from asbestos in the structure of buildings; early involvement of both Local Authority environmental health and National Health Service public health departments; creation of a systematic local database of potential environmental health hazards in the structure of buildings as well as their contents; 24 hour on-call arrangements with laboratories expert in analyses of fire fallout; rapid quantitative analyses of multiple environmental samples; district written policy on handling asbestos incidents; systematic assessment of fright and media factors in public impact of an incident; dedicated public help-lines open long hours; consistent evidence-based public messages from all those communicating with the public; measurement of asbestos levels in the street and homes for public reassurance; local and health authorities' subscription to an environmental incident support service; formation of an acute environmental incident team to jointly manage and publicly report on airborne acute environmental incidents; clear government definition of responsibilities of different agencies. CONCLUSIONS: This paper provides a description of important lessons learnt during an acute environmental incident with asbestos-containing fallout. It will be helpful to those involved in the practical planning for and management of future incidents.  (+info)

Heat stress and flame protective clothing in mine rescue brigadesmen: inter- and intraindividual variation of strain. (8/612)

A climatic exposure was conducted for the 52 rescue brigadesmen of a mine while they wore flame protective clothing. We looked for individual parameters allowing prediction of tolerated exposure times in the climate tested. Of all individual parameters, only body temperature at the end of the Stoklossa heat tolerance test and physical fitness showed significant influence on the tolerated exposure time, although not very strongly. Age, body mass, and Body Mass Index showed no significant influence on the tolerated exposure time. It was found during a longitudinal study that the tolerance time within the climate for four subjects showed considerable variations, and so it was decided neither to take the result of the heat tolerance test as admittance criterion for the mine rescue service nor to perform a ranking of brigadesmen with respect to heat tolerance by this test.  (+info)

Four of every 10 home fire deaths resulted from fires with no smoke alarms in 2003-2006, according to a new report Smoke Alarms in U.S. Home Fires, released today by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). Smoke alarms are one of the greatest fire protection devices of our time and have significantly contributed to the decline in home fire fatalities since the late 70s, said James M. Shannon, president of NFPA. But its not enough to randomly put up one smoke alarm and forget about it. In addition to placing smoke alarms in recommended areas, they must be kept in good working order, which includes testing them monthly, changing batteries at least once a year, and making sure that they are not disconnected. Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in reported home structure fires in half. The 2007 edition of NFPA 72, National Fire Alarm Code® requires smoke alarms in every bedroom, outside each sleeping area, and on every level. They should also be interconnected so that when one ...
NFPA offers smoke alarm advice during Fire Prevention Week, October 3-9, to maximize families safety from fire September 23, 2010 - Smoke alarms save lives, and can cut the risk of dying in a fire in half. However, smoke alarms must be installed, maintained and working properly to do so. Thats according to the nonprofit National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), which is promoting Smoke Alarms: A sound you can live with! as the theme for this years Fire Prevention Week campaign, October 3-9, 2010. NFPA has been the official sponsor of Fire Prevention Week for 88 years.. By now, most families know that smoke alarms are a vitally important element of home fire safety, and have at least one, says Lorraine Carli, NFPAs vice president of communication. Unfortunately, far fewer people are familiar with some of the newer recommendations for smoke alarms. Without incorporating these updated measures, many families may not be as well protected from fire as they think.. Smoke Alarms: A Sound ...
Abstract. Vegetation fires affect human infrastructures, ecosystems, global vegetation distribution, and atmospheric composition. However, the climatic, environmental, and socioeconomic factors that control global fire activity in vegetation are only poorly understood, and in various complexities and formulations are represented in global process-oriented vegetation-fire models. Data-driven model approaches such as machine learning algorithms have successfully been used to identify and better understand controlling factors for fire activity. However, such machine learning models cannot be easily adapted or even implemented within process-oriented global vegetation-fire models. To overcome this gap between machine learning-based approaches and process-oriented global fire models, we introduce a new flexible data-driven fire modelling approach here (Satellite Observations to predict FIre Activity, SOFIA approach version 1). SOFIA models can use several predictor variables and functional ...
There are a variety of codes and standards that might be applicable to a fossil fuel power generating plant. Depending on location, these can range from National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes and standards, local building codes, funding organization requirements, and insurance requirements such as Factory Mutual, Chubb, etc. It is critical that a fire protection engineer fully understand all risks associated with the power plant in question and the minimum code requirements before beginning an analysis. Based on the minimum requirements of applicable codes and standards, the fire protection engineer must determine any areas where it is appropriate to exceed the minimum requirements of the codes and then communicate that to the owner/client for approval.. Many prescriptive codes and standards exist that will provide fire protection engineers guidance as to the minimum level of protection required for some hazards. A Fossil fuel power generating facility can benefit from a proactive ...
December 18, 2008. Do the boots worn by fire fighters unintentionally put some of them at risk, particularly as the population of fire fighters becomes more diverse and one size or style may not fit all? Scientists at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Healths (NIOSH) laboratories in Morgantown, W.Va., and Pittsburgh, Pa., are conducting research to understand the physiological and biomechanical effects of boot weight on male and female fire fighters.. More than 1.1 million men and women work as fire fighters in the U.S. Fire fighters have an increased risk of occupational injuries and fatalities due to the stressful nature of their work and the complexity of their work environment. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), fire fighters suffered an estimated 80,100 occupational injuries in 2007. About a quarter of these injuries were due to overexertion and another quarter were due to falls.. As part of their personal protective equipment, most fire fighters ...

A wildland fire tender is a specialized vehicle capable of bringing water, foam, or dry chemicals to fire trucks in the field that are engaged on the fireline. These vehicles are specifically designed for fire fighting often with four-wheel drive, rugged suspension and high wheel clearance for mountainous dirt road conditions. According to the National Fire Protection Association, if the apparatus will be used primarily for outdoor and wildland responses, then it is to be considered a wildland fire apparatus and must conform to NFPA 1906. Fire tenders are generally equipped with associated fire station equipment including required number of breathing apparatus, first aid kits, telescopic ladders, heat-resisting fiberglass blankets, overall suits, electrically insulated rubber hand gloves, firemans axes with insulated handle, firemans helmets made of fiberglass, leather belt and pouch for axe, etc. Often the technique of pump-and-roll is used where the vehicle drives with the pump engaged while ...
Computing fire danger and fire risk on a spatio-temporal scale is of crucial importance in fire management planning, and in the simulation of fire growth and development across a landscape. However, due to the complex nature of forests, fire risk and danger potential maps are considered one of the most difficult thematic layers to build up. Remote sensing and digital terrain data have been introduced for efficient discrete classification of fire risk and fire danger potential. In this study, two time-series data of Landsat imagery were used for determining spatio-temporal change of fire risk and danger potential in Korudag forest planning unit in northwestern Turkey. The method comprised the following two steps: (1) creation of indices of the factors influencing fire risk and danger; (2) evaluation of spatio-temporal changes in fire risk and danger of given areas using remote sensing as a quick and inexpensive means and determining the pace of forest cover change. Fire risk and danger potential indices

When theres a fire in the home, you have very little time to evacuate from the home. Roughly three out of five fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarms or no working smoke alarms (National Fire Protection Association). Residents should consider installing both ionization and photoelectric alarms because they help detect both flaming fires and smoldering fires.. Flaming fires are typically caused by open flames igniting household materials, such as a candle catching a curtain on fire. On the other hand, smoldering fires, which research shows are the deadliest kind, dont create flames quickly. They are typically caused by smoking materials, like cigarettes, that are improperly put out.. Ionization smoke alarms detect flaming fires, and photoelectric alarms better detect smoldering fires. There are dual-sensor smoke alarms that combine the two technologies that residents can purchase as well. Smoke alarms should be interconnected and installed on every floor, inside each bedroom and ...

There was a time when fire season for Western states meant only certain months out of the year. Not so long ago the U.S. Forest Service considered it primarily a summer problem with a few regions breaking the trend in early spring and late fall. But climate change, according to most wildland fire experts, has turned fire season into a year-round issue. What used to slow down fire season was winter-a long and cold time of year with lots of snow that killed off many invasive or destructive pests and filled rivers and reservoirs with ample water to supply the needs of millions living in the West.

Fires are an integral process that occurs in all vegetated landscapes. Fire regimes are shaped by many factors including weather, climate, land use, ignition sources and land management activities. Climate change is causing fire seasons to start earlier and finish later;24,25 and anomalous meteorological conditions have been linked to a trend towards more extreme fire events.26 Compared with smaller, shorter and less severe fire events, extreme fire events are more likely to cause disasters with substantial social and economic harms from the loss of life, livelihoods, property and infrastructure.26,27,28 Further, increases in landscape fire activity overall, including severe events, will increase air pollution, further harming health.29 Climate change‐related increases in landscape fire smoke emissions may offset health gains from reducing pollution emissions from other sources.30,31 For example, it has been estimated that premature mortality associated with wildfire smoke will double in the ...
October is Fire Prevention Month and Ive partnered with First Alert to help raise awareness on the importance of fire safety at home.
How long has it been since you tested your fire alarm? If you cant remember, its time.. Many people install these devices in their homes and forget about them. However, according to the National Fire Protection Association, almost two-thirds of fire-related deaths occur in properties without working smoke alarms. And since millions of households across the country will soon have Christmas trees and extra candles burning throughout the holiday season, theres no time like the present to ensure your fire alarm is in good working order.. When should you check your alarm?. * Fire Alarms should be checked monthly and replaced every 8-10 years.. * 9 volt batteries should be replaced annually.. * Since 10-year lithium batteries last the life of the fire alarm, it is recommended to replace the entire unit when the battery dies.. * Alarms wired into the homes electrical system should be replaced every 8-10 years.. If you dont already have an alarm, there are two types that work differently to sense ...

In 2001, National Fire Plan funding became available to evaluate the influence of pre-wildfire forest structure on post wildfire fire severity. Results from this study will provide information on forest structures that are resilient to wildfire.
