NY Fire Department adds Plymovent vehicle exhaust removal system to improve firefighter and EMT health

Published:  20 August, 2014

The North Tonawanda Fire Department has replaced its existing exhaust removal system with the Plymovent award-winning Magnetic Grabber in all of its stations. Situated near the Niagra River and Erie Canal, the North Tonawanda Fire Department required 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. After having installed the Plymovent at-source exhaust removal systems, Lapham commented: ‘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 of over 30,000 people with 10,000 homes and has multiple stations as well as speciality teams, all of which are now equipped with Plymovent code-compliant exhaust removal system. 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 an easy-to-use system connection.
