Rosenbauer has announced that the company introduced its CleanLocker at their annual dealer meeting, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Sealed motorized CleanLocker The sealed motorized CleanLocker stores three complete sets of clean turnout gear, including SCBAs, on the officer’s side, outside behind the chassis cab. Cancer is considered to be the leading cause of firefighter deaths due to gaseous exposures, such as volatile organic compounds, which become embedded into the turnout gear. Soiled gear will be stored in a separate compartment towards the rear of the apparatus, in plastic bags. Cleanliness and hygiene of turnout gear “We’re seeing departments rapidly taking action in terms of removing all turnout gear from inside the cab,” said Scott Oyen, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Rosenbauer South Dakota, adding “The importance of seconds matter in responding to fires, that hasn’t changed and it is not going to, therefore, we need to help them access their turnout gear as quickly as possible, outside of the cab.” The CleanLocker will be installed on a demo unit, on display in Exhibit Hall J, at Booth 5200, in April 2019, at the Fire Department Instructor’s Conference (FDIC) International 2019 event, which is taking place in the Indiana Convention Center, in Indianapolis.
