Structural/Vehicle Fires

Cancer, Injuries and Other Illnesses

Fire fighters are exposed to a variety of hazards. At NIOSH, we research possible health effects that may occur from structural fire exposures. Our research can lead to better prevention programs. Learn more about our efforts to assess cancer, injuries, and other illnesses among structural fire fighters. Here you will find information on our current projects, published studies, and studies we presented at conferences.
