Firefighters face significant risks today, not only during response, but after the call as well. After leaving a fire, personnel, clothing and equipment are contaminated with cancer causing particulate soot and some items will continue to off-gas VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds) that can be inhaled for up to 45 minutes. In addition, medical responses and close quarters in apparatus, increase the chance for exposure to a range of bacterial and viral threats.
A COMPREHENSIVE AND SIMPLE SOLUTION
CrewProtect attacks all three significant problems for firefighters including Particulates, VOCs, and Aerosols carrying bacteria and viruses (including SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19). CrewProtect is a comprehensive and simple solution to help protect first responders from the multiple harmful and carcinogenic airborne contaminants that other filtration systems miss.
CrewProtect is a plug-and-play solution for new or in-service trucks that easily mounts to the roof, wall, or doghouse and connects to standard truck power, drawing only 2 amps.
- Automatically runs whenever the apparatus is in use
- Filtering the air in the average cab every 3.5 minutes, which exceeds the air exchange rate of “clean rooms” and operating rooms in hospitals
- Easy to change long life filters
- Visually alerts you when the filter needs to be replaced
- Plug and play installation connects to standard truck power
- The filter system’s patented technology is the ONLY fire apparatus product that tackles particulates, microbes, and VOCs
- CrewProtect 100 mounts on the ceiling, doghouse, or wall of your larger firefighting apparatus and runs at 100 CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute).
- CrewProtect 20 installs in your smaller vehicles such as the Chief’s vehicle, tiller cab, or wildland truck. This unit runs at 20 CFM.

Removes particulates, VOCs, & aerosols carrying bacteria & viruses
- Pre-Filter: Traps dust, pollen, and other large particulate matter.
- PuraWard Fibers: A high efficiency filter protected by an embedded micro-technology containing an EPA registered antimicrobial additive using copper and silver ions to combat many bacteria and viruses.*
- Molecular Filtration: Patented** molecular filtration media removes aerosols carrying viruses from the air, safely oxidizing the molecules, while removing toxic and harmful gases.
- HEPA Filter: Captures PM0.3, PM2.5, allergens, bacteria, viruses, and other particulates.
*Filter protected by an EPA-registered antimicrobial additive. **Patent number US 9,370,763 B
