The article discusses the importance of using air monitoring equipment with oxygen sensors during emergency response situations to ensure the safety of responders. It highlights that a small decrease in oxygen levels can represent a large displacement of air and result in high concentrations of unknown contaminants.
The article then introduces the RedWave XplorIR technology, which can identify over 5,500 gasses and vapors at much lower levels than what an oxygen sensor would indicate. This technology can increase the safety of responders during recon operations by identifying potentially dangerous gas clouds and preventing operators from wandering into them.
Overall, the article provides important information about air monitoring equipment and introduces a new technology that fills a gap in risk assessment technology, making it a valuable read for anyone involved in emergency response situations or interested in safety technology.
