President MacKinnon's Op-Ed on COVID-19 Pandemic
As the coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and exposures continue to grow, we want to make sure you have the latest information to protect your health and safety and the public when responding to potential COVID-19 cases.
We encourage you to watch our COVID-19 Briefing held earlier this week on the IAFF's efforts to ensure we address the needs of our members on the frontlines responding to patients who may be infected or who are quarantined or isolated due to possible exposure. We are also working with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), Congress and other fire service organizations to ensure members' health and safety needs are addressed.
Be sure to also visit our online coronavirus resource for the latest updates.

It has been said that Firefighters have 2 families. The one at home, and the one at the firehouse. Although these families differ in many ways, they both suffer the same grief when their colleague or family member is lost to occupational cancer. This video was produced by the Boston Fire Department with the support of Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. It is part of a campaign to raise awareness of the need for proper protective gear for firefighters. Studies have proven that firefighters are exposed to cancer causing carcinogens when engaged in firefighting operations, and further studies have shown that cancer rates in firefighters are significantly higher than that of the general public as a result of this exposure.
