Changes to NFPA 1582

Question asked by jgrasham747 on Mar 21, 2019

Are there any proposed changes to NFPA 1582 that address the findings of recent cancer studies that indicate firefighters are at a higher risk for cancer.  I am specifically interested in changes to the sections dealing with colon cancer screening and breast cancer screening.  Locally, we have had firefighters diagnosed with various cancers who are not 40 or 50 years old.  The same is true of a couple female firefighters and we have more recently had a male firefighter diagnosed with breast cancer.
