AFFF and PFAS exposure control - The hidden dangers in firefighting foam



"Learn about potentially hazardous chemicals found in firefighting foams and suggested best practices to prevent exposure.

Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a large family of man-made chemical compounds found in a wide range of consumer products such as nonstick products, polishes, waxes, paints and cleaning products. Two PFAS compounds, perfluorooctane acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid (PFOS), may be present in firefighting aqueous film forming foam (AFFF) solutions."
