The International Association of Fire Fighters and Masimo Team Up on a New Global Campaign to Raise Awareness of Carbon Monoxide-Related Death and Injury Risks for Fire Fighters

with Masimo and with Randolph Mantooth in this important effort," said IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger. "This is a critical educational endeavor that we hope will help contribute to the protection of our members."

Mantooth's involvement is personal: "Since my own near-death CO experience and subsequent rescue by two fire fighter/paramedics, I've become an advocate of fire fighters, paramedics, EMTs, and other emergency responders as a first step toward repaying my debt to these brave men and women. I want to encourage them to protect their own lives, so they can be there to protect others."

Randy's new IAFF presentation encourages fire fighters to get their CO levels tested on the fire scene and, if elevated, seek prompt treatment. He also urges fire fighters to take personal responsibility for their safety by recognizing the dangers of CO and preventing unnecessary exposures.

"The trade-offs for ignoring the serious dangers of CO exposure are heart attack, stroke, loss of motor skills, lifelong disability, or death," Mantooth explained. "Our fire fighters need to know and understand these significant occupational hazards, how to properly protect themselves and prevent unnecessary health risks to improve the odds that they will be around tomorrow to do what they were born to do."

As part of the campaign, Randy has created a new web site -- www.COsafetynet.org -- to provide immediate and free access to valuable information and educational resources designed to increase awareness of the immediate personal safety, long-term health, and departmental risks associated with CO exposure for fire fighters. The web site will provide fast facts and other important information about specific occupational exposures to CO and associated risks to fire fighter health and safety, as well as links to resources designed to help keep
