What is the Firefighter Cancer Problem?
 
Firefighter cancer is a looming personal catastrophe for each and every firefighter.
Cancer is the most dangerous and unrecognized threat to the health and
safety of our nation’s firefighters.
Multiple studies, including the soon-to-be-released NIOSH cancer study, have
repeatedly demonstrated credible evidence and biologic creditability for statistically
higher rates of multiple types of cancers in firefighters compared to the
general American population including:
■ Testicular cancer (2.02 times greater risk)
■ Multiple myeloma (1.53 times greater risk)
■ Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (1.51 times greater risk)
■ Skin cancer (1.39 times greater risk)
■ Prostate cancer (1.28 times greater risk)
■ Malignant melanoma (1.31 times great risk)
■ Brain cancer (1.31 times greater risk)
■ Colon cancer (1.21 times great risk)
■ Leukemia (1.14 times greater risk)
■ Breast cancer in women (preliminary study results from the San Francisco Fire
Department)

What is NFPA 1851?

What are the risks of Contaminated Bunker Gear?

NFPA 1851 is the standard which establishes requirements for the selection, care, and maintenance of fire fighting protective ensembles to reduce health and safety risks associated with improper maintenance, contamination, or damage
Contaminated Bunker Gear exposes both the wearer and those in close proximity to deadly carcinogens. The soiled gear is also more likely to ignight and fail during an interior attack scenario
