    Hello Firefighters,

    I am glad I stumbled across this, because it is not something that I have given a lot of thought to. I am not a firefighter, but I actually have 2 connections to this situation:

    – I completed most of my degree in Environmental Studies, where we discussed at length, the relationship between toxic chemicals and neurological disorders. I can only imagine what may happen when you burn chemicals that are already toxic in their normal state.

    – I was employed in the park management field, where I sprayed Gramoxone and Killex and others, with a 100 gallon tractor attachment. I also used a lot of metal based marine paints, which were ground off and re-applied annually. This was all completed well before we became safety-aware. Little or no protective gear was utilized.
