The choice of protective equipment in emergency rescue


Emergency rescue is the most effective action to save lives and reduce losses in the event of a disaster. However, emergency rescue workers often face multiple hazards in disaster relief. For example, during the “5.12” earthquake relief work, due to the high risk of the Sichuan earthquake, the terrain is complex and the climate is changeable; aftershocks continue, and secondary disasters such as landslides and mudslides threaten people’s lives and safety at any time. Individual protection for emergency rescue workers, choosing appropriate personal protective equipment for them, and ensuring their safety and health is a very important aspect of making emergency rescue and winning disaster relief.

According to the TV screen of the disaster relief scene in Sichuan, there are two kinds of helmets worn by military and police personnel. One is a bulletproof helmet and the other is a helmet. These two kinds of helmets can prevent bruises. Civilian safety helmets are mainly FRP helmets and plastic safety helmets. These two kinds of helmets are not only suitable for first-line combat personnel to choose to wear, but also second-line indoor workers and volunteers should wear it to prevent bruises to the head during the aftershocks. If you are in cold or cold areas, you should choose to wear a cold helmet.

Anti-dust and anti-impact goggles are currently on sale in the monopoly market.

Special attention should be paid to the fact that gauze masks cannot be used to prevent respiratory viral infections, which has been banned by the state. Because gauze masks have a dust blocking efficiency of only about 10% for dust below 5 μm.
