The Cairns Soft Goods Kit: An Effective Tool for Promoting Cancer Awareness and Prevention

Among the many dangers firefighters constantly confront is cancer, an especially prevalent disease in the firefighting community, according to data gathered by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and the U.S. Fire Administration. In order to combat the increasing rates of cancer among firefighters – specifically, mesothelioma, a rare form of cancer with a poor diagnosis that firefighters are twice as likely to develop than the general population – many departments have issued Cancer Awareness and Prevention Directives (CAPD) to ensure gear is decontaminated and laundered after each exposure to fire.

TheFireStore and MSA have partnered to help facilitate CAPD implementation by providing a free Cairns Soft Goods Kit to accompany purchases of select composite helmets – 1010’S, 1044’S, 660’S, 664’S, Deluxe 880’s, and HP3’s – during the month of May. The Cairns Soft Goods Kit, an $80 value, includes a number of useful items:

  •        standard liner
  •        nomex earlaps
  •        Velcro tabs
  •        mesh laundering bag
