dc.description.abstractCarbon Monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that can overcome responders before they even know there is a problem (DeBruin 2004). Much research has been done on the effects of Carbon Monoxide on the human body and on its sources. The effects of the gas can produce conditions that range from dizziness to death. There have been limited studies on the exposure of emergency workers to carbon monoxide, many of which are during controlled burns or experimental tests. (Reinhardt, 2000) This study is designed to test the levels of carbon monoxide exposure to emergency responders while they are working their normal shifts; this research is a firsthand look at actual exposure levels of emergency responders by monitoring for CO while they are completing their normal emergency operations. This study will assess EMS-FF whole exposure through normal station duties, training, emergency response and normal living conditions.en_US
