Understanding the Risks of PFAS

Also called “forever chemicals,” PFAS are a group of synthetic chemicals that have been linked to cancer and other diseases. All three layers of fire fighter turnout gear contain PFAS and pose an occupational risk of illness.

“The current scientific research indicates that PFAS plays a direct role in fire fighter cancer. Combating the scourge of cancer is the IAFF’s top priority; this is a zero fail mission.”

– IAFF General President Edward A. Kelly

Nearly 75% of Deaths Involved Occupational Cancer

Three of every four names added to the IAFF Fallen Fire Fighter Memorial Wall in 2022 died of occupational cancer. Fire fighters battling cancer, in remission from cancer, and the families of those on the Memorial Wall deserve increased support — which is exactly what the assembled PFAS legal team will strive to provide.
