Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) is primarily used in fires containing liquid flammables. The foam creates a blanket that cuts off the fuel from the oxygen it needs to burn, smothering the fire. Firefighters and navy personnel, and airport personnel are constantly exposed to this foam for training and emergencies.


One of the main ingredients of AFFF are dangerous chemicals known as perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS).PFAS refers to a group of toxic chemicals that includes Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA or C8), Perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS), and other PFA substances.


The EPA has classified PFAS chemicals as dangerous to human health. PFAS are often referred to as “forever chemicals,” because their highly durable nature means they do not break down over time. PFAS may remain in the body for years and build up overtime and causing numerous health effects.


Numerous types of cancer have been linked to exposure to firefighting foam that contains PFASand this foam has led to contamination in several regions of the country. Lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturers alleging that these companies sold AFFF despite knowing that it was hazardous to humans and the environment.


Several lawsuits against AFFF manufacturers are leading to change

3M®, DuPont®, and Chemors®, among others, have been sued for the contamination and health complications that people have experienced after being exposed to AFFF products. Many of these suits have led to cleanup efforts and large payouts for victims.
