New Protective Equipment for Firefighters, Police, Paramedics & Healthcare Workers
To help protect Canadians, it is essential that first responders right across Canada have access to the right protective equipment in the event of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incident.CSA Standards (CSA) and the federal government have announced Canada’s first national standard for protective equipment for front-line fire, police and paramedic workers. The standard identifies requirements for protective CBRN equipment, such as respiratory protection and whole-body protection. It also addresses the differences between a conventional hazardous material incident and a deliberate CBRN incident in order to understand how equipment guidelines may differ.
More information is available on the CSA website.
