Abstract
Emergency responders (ER) are twice as likely to develop an occupationally related acute pesticide illness as compared to all other non-agricultural workers. From 2000 - 2005, nine cases of Oregon emergency responders becoming ill after being exposed to pesticides while on the job were reported to the Pesticide Poisoning Surveillance Program at the Oregon Public Health Division, Department of Human Services.
