NY Fire Department Adds Plymovent Vehicle Exhaust Removal System to Improve Firefighter & EMT Health

19 August 2014 The North Tonawanda Fire Department replaced their existing exhaust removal system with the Plymovent award-winning Magnetic Grabber® in all their stations.

Situated near the Niagara River and Erie Canal, the North Tonawanda Fire Department needed an exhaust removal system that would withstand the harsh weather conditions of Western New York. Therefore, the durability and effectiveness of the product was very important to Chief Lapham. Since installing the Plymovent at-source exhaust removal systems, Lapham says "We can tell in the daily cleaning duties as there is no soot build up. It has made for a healthier work environment for all our personnel."

The North Tonawanda Fire Department serves a population greater than 30,000 with 10,000 homes and has multiple stations as well as specialty teams, all of which are now equipped with Plymovent code-compliant exhaust removal systems. Benefits include but are not limited to: a healthier work environment where exposure to hazardous exhaust fumes has been significantly reduced; a cleaner work environment in the stations for both personnel and gear; and the convenience of the easy-to-use system connection.
