The exposure period consisted of a 3-day training course where the subjects participated in various live-fire training exercises. The subjects were instructed to extinguish fires of either wood or wood with electrical cords and mattresses. The personal exposure was measured as dermal polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) concentrations and urinary excretion of 1-hydroxypyrene (1-OHP). The subjects were primarily exposed to particulate matter (PM) in by-stander positions, since the self-contained breathing apparatus effectively prevented pulmonary exposure. There was increased dermal exposure to pyrene (68.1{\%}, 95{\%} CI: 52.5{\%}, 83.8{\%}) and sum of 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (ƩPAH; 79.5{\%}, 95{\%} CI: 52.5{\%}, 106.6{\%}), and increased urinary excretion of 1-OHP (70.4{\%}, 95{\%} CI: 52.5{\%}; 106.6{\%}) after the firefighting exercise compared with the mean of two control measurements performed 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after the firefighting course, respectively. The level of Fpg-sensitive sites in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) was increased by 8.0{\%} (95{\%} CI: 0.02{\%}, 15.9{\%}) compared with control measurements. The level of DNA strand breaks was positively associated with dermal exposure to pyrene and ƩPAHs, and urinary excretion of 1-OHP. Fpg-sensitive sites were only associated positively with PAHs.
