Special glove helps firefighters cool off, recharge

Updated:

Fires hard enough to put out without triple digit temperatures, but Phoenix firefighters have a new tool to help them cool off during the tough summer months. 

The CoreControl glove helps firefighters cool down their core blood and gives them an extra boost while on the job.

The glove rapidly removes heat from the core body while cooling the blood. It is proven to accelerate the natural cooling process by up to 500 percent, which re-energizes firefighters and gets them back into the fire in almost no time at all.

The NFL's San Francisco 49ers and the NBA's Golden State Warriors also use the glove.

Phoenix firefighter Luke Anderson shows us how they use it.
