Firefighters, Paramedics, Fire Inspectors, Fire Investigators and Emergency Medical Technicians face many challenges such as; cancer, heart disease, post-traumatic stress and on the job injuries. We must continue to study, treat and prevent these silent killers. The State of Florida signed into law the Firefighter cancer Bill this year (2019).
