"We have had the Dehydrator for about 16 years, it is definitely 1 of the best well made products we have. It has required no maintenance. Never had 1 thing go wrong with it, unlike much of the other products we have. We have praised the Dehydrator Line to many other area Fire Depts".

- Holtville Fire District NY, Robert Schreiber, Commissioner

Are you aware that you put your fire fighters unknowingly at a grave and unnecessary risk of burns, illness, injuries, and diseases, from not cleaning and drying your gear?

Keeping your garments clean and dry is not merely a question of neat appearance and comfort it is a matter of protecting your fire fighters from needless harm.

According to: NFPA 1500 5-1.5 structural fire fighting protective clothing shall be periodically cleaned at a minimum of once every 6 months as specified in Section 5-4 of NFPA 1581.

Using the DEHYDRATOR in - house drying program in conjunction with a standard in - house washing machine, can be the best alternative to expensive cleaning services. Also most importantly, FEMSA recommends that the gear is not dried in a tumble dryer, the excessive temperature and tumbling action can be detrimental to the gear. It can cause excessive shrinkage and premature failure to the protective garments. What's more, FEMSA opposes drying garments in direct sunlight.

The Drying Answer....Choose the DEHYDRATOR drying system that is designed to accelerate the time required to remove the moisture from various types of "difficult to dry" turnout gear. This is achieved by blowing a flow of warm heated air into the interior of the hanging items. Air drying alone can take at least 24 hours, while humid weather can add to the time and if left hanging long enough, it can lead to mold and fungus contamination.

Eliminate wet gear in your fire department with the patented DEHYDRATOR, complete and ready for installation at your firehouse.
