Hydrogen Cyanide: New Generation Concerns Resulting in Firefighting Tactics and Medicine

The awareness of Hydrogen Cyanide (also known as its chemical formula HCN) as a deadly product of combustion is growing. The more we know the more we can prevent our responders from coming into contact with this colorless, oderless, silent killer. This informational document produced by Captain Rick Rochford of Jacksonville (FL) Fire Rescue Department gives real world examples of how HCN affects emergency incidents. He also provides excellent information pertaining to air monitoring, how HCN affects humans medically and other information about this deadly hazard.

Can you publish the list of departments that responded?

Thanks Jerry, PFESI.... Not many responses or reports " Above I- 80" .. Don't wanna hear - they don't care above I 80, if your not speaking out or fill out a simple questionaire.
