Did you know October 4-10 is the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) Fire Prevention Week? Have you ever worked with or been exposed to fire-damaged materials? Did you know fire soot is not dirt and shouldn't be treated as dirt? Fire soot is a complex substance of materials that can be a health hazard to cultural heritage workers. Be aware, check out this article from the Health & Safety Committee of the American Institute of Conservation -  The Hidden Hazards of Fire Soot.
