Diesel exhaust systems have been installed in Evansville’s firehouses.
In a news release, the Evansville Fire Department said diesel exhaust has been a health problem for many firefighters.
The EFD said the new exhaust systems will provide better health conditions.
Diesel-powered apparatus – like fire trucks -- generate exhaust whenever they leave or return to a station.
If it’s not properly captured, the exhaust will enter the apparatus bay and make its way to firefighters living quarters.
