PROTECTING FIRST RESPONDERS IS OUR #1 PRIORITY
Firefighters face risks all the time, both seen and unseen. The obvious risks—fire, heat, smoke inhalation, and injuries due to structural damage—are well-known. One of the less obvious risks, exposure to toxic chemicals and the health effects that follow, can be one of the most devastating. A NIOSH report from 2013 showed that for firefighters, the risk of a cancer diagnosis is 9 percent higher, and the risk of dying from cancer is 14 percent higher than the general public. At the department level, the statistics appear even more bleak. The International Association of Fire Fighters states that 61 percent of line-of-duty deaths are related to cancer.
