EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE, Channel 14 News) -
Being a firefighter in Evansville is about to get safer. That's because the fire department is installing diesel exhaust removal systems in the fourteen fire stations and maintenance facility.
"Fire fighters are the most valuable asset of the community. We provide safety and security to the community," says Chief Mike Connelly.
The move comes in an attempt to decrease the known cancer-causing carcinogens firefighters encounter on the job. Diesel exhaust in firehouses has been and continues to be a problem.
Matthew Johnson, Hastings Air Energy Control, adds "Thank you to Evansville Fire Department and Chief Mike Connelly for allowing me the opportunity to provide the Plymovent System to protect their firefighters!"
