Cancer: Lobbying and Research

The University of Illinois Fire Service Institute (IFSI) Research Center has begun a new project focusing on "Cardiovascular and Carcinogen Risks in Modern Firefighting". The study, in partnership with Underwriters Laboratories (UL) Firefighter Safety Research Institute (FSRI) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), will provide the first rigorous scientific study to quantify acute physiological disruptions, including thermal and cardiac strain, and exposure to products of combustion, in response to working in a realistic modern fire environment.
