One thought on “About LION”

  1. Dear Lion,

    It is a long-held belief in the fire service that we should avoid working in wet turnouts to prevent steam burns. With our increased focus on cancer in the fire service, we are recommending decontaminating ourselves after exiting the fire and one of our choices is wet decontamination. Do today’s wet turnouts actually increase the potential for steam burns?

    Best Regards,
