Firefighters battling wildfires face more danger than just getting burned. They’re in the field for hours, sometimes days, while being exposed to high heat, humidity, and smoke inhalation. Prometeo, a Spanish startup, aims to better protect the health of those first responders with individual wearable devices. Each straps to your arm and is about the size of a smartphone. These monitor both real-time risks—say, that air quality levels are getting dangerous—and the cumulative effect of exposure
