Miller said the policy is for firefighters to take a shower, then get into the sauna and onto an exercise bike where they will exercise and sweat the toxins hopefully out of their body.
Devesh Kamal, the partner in charge of the local office, said they want to help the community become stronger.
“As part of our mission to give back to the community, we decided to pick this project ‘Healthy Heros’,” he said. “Giving back to our firefighters is something we believe will be helpful with their health.”

Miller said whether the practice of sweating off toxins after a fire is an effective way to cleanse is still unproven, but its good that the local fire division has this tool in case it does works.
