Connecticut Fire Academy 'mask fit tests' Brookfield firefighters

The Connecticut Fire Academy has been visiting fire departments to "mask fit testing" first responders for N95 masks. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, Brookfield’s Fire and EMS says the need for this became vital to ensuring the safety of personnel and the public. Candlewood Company hosted the Connecticut Fire Academy last week.  Since the outbreak started in Connecticut, the Academy has Fit tested over 2000 first responders and health professionals.  They have 20 testing dates already scheduled into the first week of May.  Fit testing is required for employees who regularly wear N95, Self Contained Breathing Apparatus and other masks during their work.
