The Florida Fire Chiefs' Association needs your help

Firefighters are afflicted with cancer at a higher rate than the general population.  Moreover, the suicide, post-traumatic stress, and catastrophic addictions are increasingly taking the lives of firefighters.  The Florida Fire Chiefs' Association feels that education is the first step in reducing or preventing these risks. 
 
"Senate Bill 394 - Fire Safety" amends Florida State Statute Chapter 633 to require training related to cancer and mental health risks for all career and volunteer firefighters seeking new firefighter certifications.
 
This bill must be passed by the Senate Rules Committee which only has one more meeting schedule for February 22, 2018.
 
Please use the phone script to contact Senator Lizbeth Benacquisto, who is the chair of the Senate Rules Committee, and request that she place SB 394 on the agenda of the February 22, Senate Rules Committee.

You can do this by confirming your contact information on the right to access the phone script.

Your voice is important in our effort to make the Florida Fire Service safer.
