Biden Headlines the 2023 International Association of Fire Fighters Legislative Conference
President Biden's proposed Firefighter Protection Act aims to provide critical resources and support to firefighters across the United States, with a focus on their health, safety, and training. The Act seeks to support all firefighters, including career and volunteer firefighters and was created in recognition of the unique risks and challenges faced by those who risk their lives to protect our communities.
Justice for firefighters!
Firefighters are already putting their lives at risk daily to protect our communities. Why are we letting them face even more harm from the equipment they are required to use? PFAs are extremely toxic and causing irreversible damage to not only our environments, but our bodies as well.

A new MDL for the Aqueous Fire Fighting Foam (AFFF) is brought forward to the federal court. These lawsuits all have similar issues regarding the toxicity of the foam and its links to cancer.
Research shows that about 20% of firefighters exposed to the foam were diagnosed with cancer at some point. Many were also diagnosed with other serious complications.
The Aqueous Film-Forming Foam Product Liability Litigation sees high volumes of cases against manufacturers like 3M®, TYCO Fire Product, Dupont®, Buckeye Fire Equipment, and Chemguard Inc.
The Judge motioned for summary judgement and stated that AFFF manufacturers withheld information about the health risks associated with the firefighting foam.
The charges against AFFF manufacturers include long-term exposure to the foam and the affects on individual firefighters, and also the the costs associated with cleaning up contaminated water supplies from AFFF spills.
