Robert Menendez, co-authors of landmark legislation to protect firefighters from cancer risks, today celebrated the signing into law of the Firefighter Cancer Registry Act H. The bipartisan bill requires the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC to create a national cancer registry for firefighters to monitor and study the relationship between career-long exposure to dangerous fumes and toxins and the incidence of cancer in firefighters so to develop better protective gear and prevention techniques. Pascrell, co-chair of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus. Thank you to Senator Menendez for his efforts getting this bill through the Congress and signed into law.
Senator Bob Menendez D-N. The bill creates a national cancer registry for firefighters diagnosed with the deadly disease and calls on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention CDC to monitor and study the relationship between career-long exposure to dangerous fumes and toxins and the incidence of cancer in firefighters to determine if there is a link, and to develop better protective gear and prevention techniques.
The ultimate goal of the Firefighter Cancer Registry is to prevent cancer in firefighters by developing better ways of protecting them through study and greater understanding of their cancer risks. Pascrell, co-chair of the Congressional Fire Services Caucus.
This legislation has long enjoyed bipartisan support because having the backs of those protecting our families is a cause we all support. After the legislation is signed, I look forward to working with the CDC and members of the firefighting community to see that the new registry is implemented to its fullest use.

The bill, which was unanimously approved by the Senate this May, was reintroduced in Februarywith 49 bipartisan Senate cosponsors: A study by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health NIOSH found that firefighters had a greater number of cancer diagnoses and cancer-related deaths for certain types of cancer when compared to the general U.
The study confirmed that firefighters have an increased risk of cancer because of occupational exposure.
To bolster the efforts led by researchers at NIOSH, the firefighter cancer registry will improve collection capabilities and activities related to the nationwide monitoring of cancer incidence among all firefighters — both career and volunteer.
Additionally, the legislation will: Develop a firefighter registry of available cancer incidence data collected by existing State Cancer Registries and a strategy to maximize participation; Create a registry that will contain relevant history, such as other occupational information, years of service, number of fire incidents responded to, and additional risk factors; Make de-identified data available to public health researchers to provide them with robust and comprehensive datasets to expand groundbreaking research; and Improve our understanding of cancer incidences by requiring administrators to consult regularly with public health experts, clinicians, and firefighters.
They should not have to sacrifice their health, too. The Firefighter Cancer Registry Act of will start giving us the information we need to ensure the health and safety of those who put their lives in danger to keep us safe. The cancer registry will give us the data we need to fight cancer head on and save fire fighter lives.
This is the kind of action we want to see coming out of Washington, D. This registry will improve our understanding of why firefighter cancer is occurring at such a high rate, and will make it easier to prevent, detect, and treat. We look forward to collecting this important data in the federal registry and sharing it with our civilian counterparts.Risk factors such as smoking, sedentary lifestyle, obesity/increased waist circumference, and hypertension were associated with poor control of at least three of the four assessed lipid abnormalities.
