Escalating opioid use in the United States poses a significant and constant threat of exposure to law enforcement officers, first responders, medical and prison personnel. Is your department prepared with opioid protection for what it may encounter today? The particulate size of Fentanyl can be anywhere from 0.2 to 2.0 microns, so the powders are easily aerosolized, presenting a respiratory as well as a dermal hazard for opioid exposure. Make sure you have the appropriate ppe for handling opioids and other unknown powdered substances.
DQE’s line of personal protection kits shield law enforcement officers from unknown powdered substance risks that could contain lethal opioids. These ppe kits range in coverage based on possible exposure levels: Quick Protection, Standard Protection, and Extra Protection.
