Exploring cancer risk among firefighters
Scientists are taking a new approach to studying cancer risk among firefighters. Researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute are working with the Boston Fire Department to examine risk factors at stations Most research into firefighters and cancer has focused on exposure to toxic compounds when fighting fires, but fire stations are a second home for firefighters and they’re filled with diesel fire trucks and protective gear in which toxic chemicals can accumulate. The Boston Fire Department is concerned that firefighters are being diagnosed with, and dying from, cancer at higher than normal rates. Previous studies have found significantly elevated rates of some types of cancers in firefighters, particularly multiple myeloma, non-Hodgkin lymphoma, prostate cancer, and gastrointestinal and lung cancers, so researchers are measuring air quality at various fire stations. They’re also interviewing firefighters about lifestyle habits, such as sleep, diet, and exercise. A key part of the research will be comparing older fire stations to newer ones, to assess the impact of insulation and building materials. After analyzing data from this project, researchers hope to use the results to propose long-term workplace interventions.

The invisible danger firefighters face
A Fox 9 investigation finds some Minnesota firefighters are not being educated or trained on how to prevent cancer risks while on the job, even though a large percentage of firefighters want more help in cutting the risks of getting the disease. Cancer has become the leading cause of line-of-duty deaths for firefighters. Sixty percent will die from cancer compared with 20 percent of the general public, according to the International Association of Firefighters.

Firefighter cancer bill passes
It was a touching tribute Thursday at the State Capitol for one Atlanta’s fallen firefighters. Frank Martinez lost his battle with cancer in December, but the longtime firefighter also had another fight on his hands: the battle to get cancer coverage for fire rescue workers in Georgia. WATCH: The Georgia Legislature pays honor to firefighter Frank Martinez IFrame RELATED: Ga. first responders escort dying Atlanta firefighter Lawmakers approved a bill Thursday to help the men and women who run toward danger, even putting their own health at risk. A standing ovation in the House of Representatives after lawmakers gave the final approval to a bill that would help firefighters diagnosed with cancer in Georgia. “This bill was in honor of firefighter Frank Martinez with Squad 4, Atlanta Fire Department,” said Rep. Micah Gravley, R – Douglasville. House Bill 146 will require fire departments to provide insurance coverage for cancer starting in 2018, something Martinez fought for before he lost his own cancer battle in December. RELATED: Funeral held for Atlanta firefighter who lost battle with cancer Lawmakers passed a similar measure last year, but Governor Nathan Deal vetoed it, citing fiscal concerns. Rep. Gravley said that gave him and others a chance to work together to improve the legislation. “Last year, the bill contained litigation. This year there is no litigation contained in the bill. This is immediate benefit that will be paid out to the firefighter upon diagnosis. Also, last year’s bill did not incorporate salary protection... And I think it's a better bill,” said Rep. Gravley. Dennis Thayer with the Georgia Firefighters Cancer Coalition said the measure is critical because with all the plastics and petroleum products in people’s homes, firefighters are more likely to have contact with carcinogens. “It just gives the guys and girls out there that are running into those homes saying hey, if you don't contract cancer, there's a path for us to help take care of you,” said Thayer. The bill now heads to the governor's desk for his signature. NEXT ARTICLE: Peake: lawmakers reach compromise on medical cannabis

PFP systems must comply with the associated listing and approval use and compliance in order to provide the effectiveness expected by building codes... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flame_retardant The term flame retardants subsumes a diverse group of chemicals which are added to manufactured materials, such as plastics and textiles, and surface finishes and coatings. Flame retardants are activated by the presence of an ignition source and are intended to prevent or slow the further development of ignition by a variety of different physical and chemical methods. They may be added as a copolymer during the polymerisation of a polymer, mixed with polymer at an moulding or extrusion process or, in particular for textiles, applied as a topical finish.

It is a passive fire protection measure. "Fireproof" or "fireproofing" can be used as a noun, verb or adjective; it may be hyphenated ("fire-proof"). Applying a certification listed fireproofing system to certain structures allows them to have a fire-resistance rating. The term "fireproofing" may be used in conjunction with standards, as reflected in common North American construction specifications. An item classed as fireproof is resistant in specified circumstances, and may burn or be rendered inoperable by fire exceeding the intensity or duration that it is designed to withstand... History Asbestos was one material historically used for fireproofing, either on its own, or together with binders such as cement, either in sprayed form or in pressed sheets, or as additives to a variety of materials and products, including fabrics for protective clothing and building materials. Because the material was later proven to cause cancer in the long run, a large removal and replacement industry has been established. Endothermic materials have also been used to a large extent and are still in use today, such as gypsum, concrete and other cementitious products. More highly evolved versions of these are used in aerodynamics, intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) and re-entry vehicles, such as the space shuttles...

WTF Is Asbestos, Really?!

Natural vs. Artificial Flavors: What's The Difference? - https://youtu.be/9Unc-MSZJ8s Sign Up For The Seeker Newsletter Here - http://bit.ly/1UO1PxI Read More: Asbestos Exposure and Cancer Risk https://www.cancer.gov/about-cancer/causes-prevention/risk/substances/asbestos/asbestos-fact-sheet#q1 Asbestos is the name given to a group of minerals that occur naturally in the environment as bundles of fibers that can be separated into thin, durable threads. These fibers are resistant to heat, fire, and chemicals and do not conduct electricity. For these reasons, asbestos has been used widely in many industries. The EPA Will Begin Regulating These 10 Chemicals as Potentially Toxic http://motherboard.vice.com/read/epa-list-10-chemicals-toxic-substances-control-act The decades-old Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) has gotten an injection of new life. This past June, President Obama signed an act meant to update the old law so that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) could refocus its energy on mitigating the dangers that existing chemical substances present to human health. Learn About Asbestos https://www.epa.gov/asbestos/learn-about-asbestos#asbestos Asbestos-related conditions can be difficult to identify. Healthcare providers usually identify the possibility of asbestos exposure and related health conditions like lung disease by taking a thorough medical history.

New vs Old Room Fire Final UL
This video, made by NIST (National Institute of Standards and Testing) shows the danger of "modern" fires compared to the danger of fires occuring 40 years ago. Keep your eye on the clock! The room on the left is furnished with old fashioned furnishings, made mostly with natural materials (wood, cotton, wool, silk, etc). The room on the right is furnished with stuff made largely with synthetic material. Most synthetics are petroleum based. Think of them as frozen gasoline. The legacy room fire is just begining to really spread at the time the modern room is burning from floor to ceiling. Even the air is burning! Think about this next time somone tells you that "response time" will only be slightly increased. If you or a loved one is in the fire apartment or house, a slight increase is NOT acceptable. Please pass this along to everyone you know that lives in NYC. The Mayor seems not to understand the meaning of "essential service".

Spent Nuclear Fuel Cask Crash Tests: "Engineered for Safety" 1991 US DOE Sandia National Labs
Nuclear & Radioactive playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL4CD7F0970A5F16AB more at: http://scitech.quickfound.net Includes film of a 140-ton diesel train traveling at 100 mph crashing into a 48-ton spent fuel cask laying on the track in the cradle of a derailed flat bed rail rar. "Engineered for Safety: A U.S. Department of Energy Report on Spent Fuel Transportation Containers." Radioactive waste transportation safety film from Sandia National Laboratories. Originally a public domain film from the US National Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied. The soundtrack was also processed with volume normalization, noise reduction, clipping reduction, and/or equalization (the resulting sound, though not perfect, is far less noisy than the original). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuclear_flask Wikipedia license: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ A nuclear flask is a shipping container that is used to transport active nuclear materials between nuclear power station and spent fuel reprocessing facilities. Each shipping container is designed to maintain its integrity under normal transportation conditions and during hypothetical accident conditions. They must protect their contents against damage from the outside world, such as impact or fire. They must also contain their contents from leakage, both for physical leakage and for radiological shielding. Spent nuclear fuel shipping casks are used to transport spent nuclear fuel used in nuclear power plants and research reactors to disposal sites such as the nuclear reprocessing center at COGEMA La Hague site... In the United States, the acceptability of the design of each cask is judged against Title 10, Part 71, of the Code of Federal Regulations (other nations' shipping casks, possibly excluding Russia's, are designed and tested to similar standards (International Atomic Energy Agency "Regulations for the Safe Transport of Radioactive Material" No. TS-R-1)). The designs must demonstrate (possibly by computer modelling) protection against radiological release to the environment under all four of the following hypothetical accident conditions, designed to encompass 99% of all accidents: - A 9-meter (30 ft) free fall onto an unyielding surface - A puncture test allowing the container to free-fall 1 meter (about 39 inches) onto a steel rod 15 centimeters (about 6 inches) in diameter - A 30-minute, all-engulfing fire at 800 degrees Celsius (1475 degrees Fahrenheit) - An 8-hour immersion under 0.9 meter (3 ft) of water. - Further, an undamaged package must be subjected to a one-hour immersion under 200 meters (655 ft) of water. In addition, between 1975 and 1977 Sandia National Laboratories conducted full-scale crash tests on spent nuclear fuel shipping casks. Although the casks were damaged, none would have leaked... Since 1965, approximately 3,000 shipments of spent nuclear fuel have been transported safely over the U.S.'s highways, waterways, and railroads. Baltimore train tunnel fire On July 18, 2001, a freight train carrying hazardous (non-nuclear) materials derailed and caught fire while passing through the Howard Street railroad tunnel in downtown Baltimore, Maryland, United States. The fire burned for 3 days, with temperatures as high as 1000 °C (1800 °F). Since the casks are designed for a 30-minute fire at 800 °C (1475 °F), several reports have been made regarding the inability of the casks to survive... State of Nevada The State of Nevada, USA, released a report entitled, "Implications of the Baltimore Rail Tunnel Fire for Full-Scale Testing of Shipping Casks" on February 25, 2003. In the report, they said a hypothetical spent nuclear fuel accident based on the Baltimore fire: - "Concluded steel-lead-steel cask would have failed after 6.3 hours; monolithic steel cask would have failed after 11-12.5 hours." - "Contaminated Area: 32 square miles (82 km2)" - "Latent cancer fatalities: 4,000-28,000 over 50 years (200-1,400 during first year)" - "Cleanup cost: $13.7 Billion (2001 Dollars)"...

12 Most Radioactive Places on Earth
These are the top most most dangerous radiation hot spots in the world from nuclear weapons testing to power plant explosions! Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Fort D’Aubervilliers Originally constructed as fortification to protect Paris from going under attack in 1846, it’s actually now one of the world's most radioactive places. It’s here where some of the first tests on radioactivity were conducted. Frederic and Irene Joliot-Curie both worked with salts of radium-226. People have noticed a large amount of cancer in the area especially in a school near the fort in 2002. High doses or radioactive contamination appeared to be the only plausible explanation and a study in 2006 confirmed the radioactivity. 5. McClure Radioactive Site A company looking to build some houses came across a startling discovery when surveying new land in Ontario Canada. The McClure site was contaminated with high amounts of radium from industrial use and a large amount of the soil as contaminated. They found out later that the plant in the area was put radioactive scrap metal in the ground for experimental purposes. The researchers had wanted to see if the radioactivity would somehow accelerate plant growth. The experiments were obviously unsuccessful but the area remains contaminated to this day. Some people have some crazy theories! 4. McGuire Air Force Base During the Cold War, America was quite eager to have the best nuclear arms of any country in the world. The McGuire Air Force Base was seriously contaminated from weapons grade plutonium in 1960. Located just south of Trenton, this was home to Launch Shelter 204 that stored nuclear, intercontinental ballistic missiles. An unexpected explosion happened in a helium that caused a fire in the nuclear tipped BOMARC missile. The fire burned for about 15 minutes and was extinguished with water. This resulted in radioactive material and water to flow throughout the air force base. Some pieces of debris were found a half mile from the explosion. It could have been much worse considering how close it is to populated areas. The contaminated area stretches an estimated 7 acres and it’s closed off with a barbed wire fence. So don’t even think about coming here! 3. Mailuu-Suu This place is one of the most polluted and radioactive sites in the world. Located in Kyrgyzstan, it’s radiation is derived from the large amount of Uranium ore deposits. Mining operations from 1946 to 1968 left this place severely damaged. They managed to mine nearly 10,000 tons of uranium ore for the Soviet nuclear program. A landslide that took place in 1958 released 6000 cubic meters of material from this mine, leaving radioactive particles all over the place. There’s more than 20000 times the amount of normal radiation at this location. When the mining operations ended, it left many people without jobs. It’s believed that many settlers of this region, put themselves in danger and attempt to sell of the metal to scrap metal dealers. 2.Chernobyl Exclusion Zone Chernobyl and Pripyat were both quickly evacuated after a horrific meltdown took place at the nuclear power plant Reactor number 4 on April 26, 1986. People fled this area so quickly that they left many of their belongings behind. As a result of the meltdown, no one has been allowed to live here due to the high amounts of radiation set off from the explosion. The toxic cloud of particles affected a large part of eastern europe and some material was even found as far away as Switzerland. This photo here depicts what's known as the elephant foot is the reminisce of the black lava firefighters found that oozed directed from the core of the power plant. This is basically molten radioactive lava and certainly not something you want to get close. Stand next to this thing for 300 hundred seconds and you’ll only have two days to live. Although nature has been able to flourish here, mankind certainly won’t be making their way back to this place any time soon. 1.Fukushima Power Plant ` A tsunami that struck the coast of Japan in 2011 after an earth and it’s the worst nuclear power plant disaster since Chernobyl by a longshot. The reactors automatically shut down and the tsunami destroyed the emergency cooling generators causing it to overheat. This lead to not one, not two, but three nuclear meltdowns and the releasing of radioactive material all over the area. It was given the Level 7 classification by the International Nuclear Event Scale. This has lead many people seriously concerned for their health in this area and the eventual number of cancer victims could be through the roof! Radiation hotspots like this one in kashiwa are completely closed from the public. Radioactivity is now found much more often through the entire Pacific ocean and has been causing mutations in plants and animals in many parts of the world.

Daily cleaning of your Phenix helmet
This video covers the very basic recommendations for cleaning your Phenix First Due helmet. Please review the care and use recommendations listed below for more details information. CARE AND USE RECOMMENDATIONS Phenix Fire Helmets are designed to provide years of continuous safe use. For decades it was believed that a “salty” helmet was the sign of a “real firefighter.” Unfortunately, we have learned that that “salty” gear is also responsible for significant increases in firefighter related cancers. Additionally, gear that has not been cleaned may hide issues that could result in a failure of the helmet to provide complete protection. As a result we strongly encourage you to follow the following care and maintenance plan. Light Cleaning – Soak a simple washcloth, soft towel, or soft bristle brush in warm water and wipe down all the exposed areas of the helmet (you may use a mild liquid detergent, with a ph level of 7-8, during this process, but be sure to rinse the areas thoroughly afterwards). Take a soft towel and make sure that you dry the entire helmet by wiping it off and then hanging it to dry in a shaded area. While cleaning the helmet look for deep scratches, cracks, bubbling, or other damage that may suggest the helmet needs to be replaced. Make sure the helmet is dry before returning it to a station locker or placing it in a gear bag. DO NOT use any degreaser on your helmet. Frequency – At the end of every shift or training function Tools needed – None required Deep Cleaning – Remove the helmet’s goggles/faceshield, earlaps, suspension, chinstrap, ID shield, closed cell foam impact liner, and any accessories you have attached to the helmet. Phenix Technology, Inc. has designed our line of fire helmets so that you can remove all of these components in just a few minutes. Set up a bucket or wash basin with a mixture of mild detergent (with a ph level of 7-8) and hot water. Use caution to ensure the water is not hot enough to cause injury. Using a soft bristle brush, thoroughly wash in the inside and outside of the helmet shell. While washing the shell make sure to remove any foreign material and inspect the helmet for any deep scratches, cracks, bubbling, or other damage that may suggest the helmet needs to be replaced. Wipe the shell off with a clean towel, check all labels to confirm date of manufacturer (if your department follows NFPA 1851 make sure to replace your helmet at 10 years) and then hang it to dry in a shaded area. If possible, remove the earlaps, comfort pad, ratchet cover, and foam crown pad from the suspension and wash it using the soft bristle brush. Submerge the chinstrap in the water solution and scrub thoroughly. Using the soft bristle brush scrub the goggles/faceshield removing any foreign material and inspect for damage or excessives. Replace if you are unable to properly use or see through. Repeat these steps for all other components/accessories except for the earlaps, impact liner, foam crown pad, and comfort pad. Gently rinse and wipe down the impact liner and foam crown pad. Using a non agitating washing machine or extractor wash the earlaps and comfort pad using a mild soap and then hang to dry. Do not place any helmet components in a dryer. Inspect every component while you are cleaning it and replace if necessary. Wipe down all of the components and let them air dry in a shaded area. Once the shell and all components/accessories are completely dry reassemble the helmet and return it to storage. Proper personal protective equipment should always be used during a deep cleaning. DO NOT use any degreaser on your helmet. Frequency – Once a year or when the helmet has been exposed to cancer causing chemicals. Tools needed – Screwdriver or hex nut driver may be needed to remove ID shields. * Helmets exposed to CBRN terrorism agents or other hazardous materials must be decontaminated or disposed of following your department’s Standard Operating Procedures It is important you regularly conduct care and maintenance on each helmet. Failure to follow the care and maintenance listed may result in voiding of the warranty and also may expose you to life threatening cancer causing chemicals.

LOUIS, MO: Coldwater Creek Facts http://www.coldwatercreekfacts.com/ Our History We are a group of former and current residents of North St. Louis County that began to notice unexplainably high incidents of cancer and disease in our relatively young population. In 2011, we started a Facebook page, Coldwater Creek – Just the Facts Please, to inquire among other residents. After investigating, we learned that a local St. Louis corporation played a significant role in the development of the first nuclear weapons. Mallinckrodt Chemical Works began processing the original Belgian Congo Uranium (U235) in 1942 for the first atomic bomb at its downtown St. Louis location (SLDS). By the mid 1940’s, Mallinckrodt Chemical Works had run out of space and began to ship the radioactive waste offsite, to an underpopulated area, north of St. Louis. The offsite storage was located at the Hazelwood Interim Storage Site (HISS) on Latty Avenue and also at the St. Louis Airport Site (SLAPS). Radioactive materials were stored in bulk, on the ground, open to the elements, and unattended next to Coldwater Creek until the 1970’s. Coldwater Creek runs throughout North St. Louis County and is a tributary for the Missouri River. Through wind, rain, flooding, and groundwater, Coldwater Creek was contaminated, providing radioactive material a mode of transportation. The area the radioactive material was stored on surrounding the creek consists of porous material and is riddled with underground interconnecting caves, rivers, springs and groundwater tables. From the 1950’s to 1970’s there was a significant population boom in St. Louis County. With the population growth, there was a flurry of construction activity, building new subdivisions and supporting businesses. Construction grading disturbed the radioactive materials, effectively redistributing the contamination throughout all of North St. Louis County, much like spreading icing on a cake. Some of the radioactive materials that had previously been buried or contained in underground water tables, were now exposed to open air, or used as fill for newly created subdivision lawns. Our community has been chronically exposed to ionizing radiation for decades through inhalation and ingestion. Radioactive materials stored in open piles or mixed with residential dirt, was dispersed into the wind and could travel up to 10 miles, for inhalation among the local population. Food sources were contaminated and ingested by leaching into locally grown farm and backyard garden vegetation, and local dairy supplies. Today, the government has acknowledged contamination occurred and is working to clean up the area through a program called FUSRAP (Formerly Utilized Sites Remedial Action Program). View the Record of Decision http://tinyurl.com/o9frkhp Our community is experiencing identical cancers and diseases that the CDC (Center for Disease Control), EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and ATSDR (Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry) has linked to ionizing radiation exposure. What do the experts say? I've sent my personal geiger counter to a friend in St. Louis to do live readings. It's an inspector alert calibrated to Cesium-137.

Don't Forget To Wash Your Hood.
Don't forget to wash your hood after every use in any kind of fire. This will help to decrease your chance of developing cancer. Carcinogens released from the burning of many various materials build up on and impregnate the fibers of all firefighter gear. Routinely washing your gear after every exposure will greatly reduce a firefighters' risk of cancer. Firefighters are at a much greater risk of developing cancer than the average person due to repeated exposures to chemicals, toxic smoke and diesel exhaust. One small step in reducing that risk is not forgetting to wash your hood!

Indianapolis Fire Marshal Fred Pervine says Sparky's Wish List a great online tool
Sparky's Wish List™: Partnering for Fire-Safe Communities, is going to be great tool for the Indianapolis fire service and the community, according to Indianapolis Fire Marshal Fred Pervine. Chief Pervine, who was attending the FDIC Conference in Indianapolis in April 2012, says many times, people and businesses in his community would like to help support the local fire service, but they don't know how. He says Sparky's Wish List will help the fire service define their needs in these tough economic times and help the community fulfill their 'wishes' for quality public education materials. The National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) new "Sparky's Wish List™: Partnering for Fire-Safe Communities" invites fire departments to create a free online wish list for Fire Prevention Week materials. Businesses and the public can fulfill departments' wish lists and provide these critical educational materials for their communities. http://www.nfpa.org/swl/index.asp http://www.firepreventionweek.org

Painting Health Hazards and Their Control 1982
This is from the 1984 NIOSH video, Dual Protection (14 minutes), an excellent training tool that is still relevant today, 25 years later. It explores ways to control painter exposure to hazardous materials through the substitution of safer materials and equipment and other engineering controls, including ventilation. For more information on health and safety protection for painters, go to: CPWR — The Center for Construction Research and Training, formerly known as The Center to Protect Workers' Rights (CPWR), a world leader in improving the health and safety of construction workers at http://www.cpwr.com/ NIOSH -- the US National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/ Alaska's Hazardous Paint Handlers Certification program - at http://www.cdc.gov/eLCOSH/docs/d0100/d000178/d000178.html - this requires that professional painters in Alaska be certified through a training course consists of 16 hours of instruction on the identification of hazards and the use of engineering controls, such as ventilation, and protective equipment, such as respirators, rubber gloves and "barrier creams" for the skin. A law creating the program was passed in 1989, after the International Agency for Research on Cancer concluded that "occupational exposure as a painter is carcinogenic," based on studies showing a consistent excess of cancer among painters. Some recent studies indicate that even the offspring of painters may be at increased risk of cancer or birth defects. Painting is sometimes called "the carcinogenic trade." Materials used by professional painters -- solvent-bearing enamels, epoxies and thinners, for instance -- can cause cancer as well as painful skin rashes, nerve damage and long-term chemical sensitivity. Environment -- safer paint products can be good for the environment and for workers. This approach goes under several names - green chemistry, pollution prevention or toxic use reduction.

Right. We find out now that it has asbestos in it. You had all these women that were dying from cervical cancer. Well, the asbestos inside is a tremolite asbestos, a very, very potent kind of asbestos. That asbestos has the ability, once it gets into your body, it migrates all through the body. They even find asbestos fibers in the brain, all the way down in the leg. Now you have these asbestos fibers migrating through the body, women of course were putting it all over the body, it was moving up into the cervix and now these women are dying of cervical cancer. What's your take on this case? You used to do these cases, I think. The meso cases. Yeah I handled a lot of the asbestos cases. Mesothelioma, yeah. That's right. And you can only get meso from asbestos. Only asbestos. Yeah, that's correct. You have people that have used J&J for their baby powder and all of a sudden have meso. What I thought was disgusting, so you have this expert that came on the stand this week and said, "Oh yeah, there's asbestos in J&J baby powder." During the case, they're blaming it on the defendants or blaming it on well, you might've been exposed at some school you went to, and the whole time they knew it, the studies date back to the '70s that showed that they knew there were asbestos. They put a new name on it, which I guess if you don't list it in the ingredients, that it doesn't cause a problem. Here, let me tell you this. The documents that I used in trial in the early days, Sumner Simpson documents, there are half a dozen documents that you read and it's the O M G moments. One of the documents says, "These people working around asbestos, make a good living with asbestos, let's let them die with asbestos." That was back in the '30s and then they kept it secret. This is the same deal. Johnson & Johnson was using talc mines, they were taking talc out of these mines contaminated with asbestos and they're trying to convince everybody, "Oh no there's..." well here's the bad news, Peter, they've actually visualized it with a microscopic technology. They've actually seen the asbestos inside the powder itself and you still have J&J saying, "No that's something different, we don't know what it is, but it's not asbestos." It's the same defense firms again, Kirk and Alice on those who's defending the J&J again. Bury it, don't tell them what's out there, we'll hire a big power defense firm and see what we can do to unwind it. It's cheaper to pay lawyers than it is from the profits from the wrong doing. Right, right. Let's take a break, I'm Mike Papantonio here with Peter Mougey. We'll be right back.

Part of the Plan: Fire Safety and Preparedness
October 20, 2017 National Fire Prevention Week is observed mid-October every year. For the Philadelphia Fire Department, fire prevention is preached year-round as part of their community outreach. For October’s Part of the Plan video, the Office of Emergency Management attended a "live-house burn" with Philadelphia Fire Commissioner Adam Thiel.  The commissioner gave insight into the “science of fire”. One fact that stood out: Four decades ago, Americans had an average of 17 minutes to escape a house fire. Today, due to construction and home furnishing materials, that number is down to three minutes. Another detail that stood out was the importance of keeping your door closed when you sleep. Temperatures can reach 1000 degrees in a house fire. Closing your bedroom door makes a 900 degree difference as well as keeping toxic smoke out of your room, allowing extra time for you to escape or firefighters to rescue you.  So, what can you do to help you and your family be safe? Consider the following steps to fire safety: Create a Family Emergency Plan that includes the possibility of evacuation. Take the needs of all in your house into consideration, including your pets. Check in with neighbors that may need help. If you need to evacuate, you will have to leave your home quickly. Decide now where you can go. You should decide what you will need to take with you in your Go Bag. Fill out a health information form for anyone with medical conditions, special needs, or prescription medications. Keep your important documents safe. If your paper files and personal computer are lost or damaged in a fire, flood, or other emergency, your personal information, bank statements, and insurance records could be destroyed.  Make copies of ID, social security cards, passports, banking, and insurance documents. Take photos and store digitally or put them in you Go Bag or water-proof Shelter-in-Place kit. Make sure to practice your plan at home. Have fire drills, make sure you use different exits every time you practice. Practice getting to your emergency meeting places and make sure everyone knows how to get there. Know the Fire Safety Rules and develop a Fire Escape Plan with help from the Philadelphia Fire Department. Test your smoke alarm. Nationally, three of five fire deaths do not have a working smoke detector in the home. Don’t have one and can’t afford it? The Philadelphia Fire Department has one for free. Contact Philly 3-1-1.

9/11 - NIST FOIA Spray-on Fire-Resistant Material Survey Floor - 14 World Trade Center 1 4/11/1993
9/11 - NIST FOIA SFRM Survey Floor - 14 World Trade Center 1 4/11/1993 "Several materials were considered for the sprayed thermal insulation. The exterior columns required insulation not only for fire protection but also to control column temperatures under service conditions. Alcoa recommended for the exterior columns the use of a sprayed material produced by U.S. Mineral Products, Co. known as CAFCO BLAZE-SHIELD Type D. The same material was eventually selected for the floor trusses and core beams and columns. This product, however, contained asbestos fibers. On April 13, 1970, New York City issued restrictions on the application of sprayed thermal insulation containing asbestos. The use of CAFCO BLAZE-SHIELD Type D was discontinued in 1970 at the 38th floor of WTC 1. The asbestos-containing material was subsequently encapsulated with a sprayed material that provided a hard coating. A green dye was added to the encapsulating material so that the asbestos containing SFRM could be identified. Thermal protection of the remaining floors of WTC 1 and all of WTC 2 was carried out using CAFCO BLAZE-SHIELD Type DC/F, a product that contained mineral wool (glassy fibers) in place of the crystalline asbestos fibers. On the basis of tests, it was reported that the thermal properties of CAFCO Type DC/F were equal to or "slightly better" than those of CAFCO Type D."

what is asbestos ? what is mesothelioma ? finding mesothelioma lawyers and mesothelioma attorney
Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material that has been a popular building material since the 1950s. It is used as an insulator (to keep in heat and keep out cold), has good fire protection properties and protects against corrosion. Because asbestos is often mixed with another material, it's hard to know if you're working with it or not. But, if you work in a building built before the year 2000, it's likely that some parts of the building will contain asbestos. Asbestos is found in many products used in buildings, including ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, boilers and sprayed coatings. Asbestos is a naturally occurring fibrous material which was regularly used in buildings from the 1950s until the late 1990s. It is still found today in many buildings, including homes, schools and hospitals. If disturbed, it can be a killer. Asbestos was widely used as an insulation and fire proofing solution. In particular, it found its way into products like ceiling tiles, pipe insulation, boilers, sprayed coatings and garage roof tiles.
