IAFF Local 42, IAFF Local 3808 and the Kansas City, MO Fire Department are working on a joint initiative through its Labor Management Committee process to approve and enact new protocols and procedures to reduce the risk of cancer amongst our members. This is the first step in our efforts to create a Cancer Prevention Program and will be seeking funding to improve for washers and dryers in more facilities to clean our PPE. The Kansas City Star featured the video that is shown below on their website talking about the new changes being made on the fire ground to greatly reduce the risk of absorbing toxins within our body where we are most likely at risk.
IAFF Local 42 is working on similar policies and procedures in all of its bargaining units and we will provide updates to our membership as they develop.
