John P. Redmond Symposium 

Occupational Health & Hazards
of the Fire Service

"Our fire fighters and paramedics continue to face traditional hazards and emerging threats during an economic crisis where budgets are being cut across North America.  The IAFF continues on the frontline to improve the health and safety of our members.  This year’s IAFF Redmond Symposium reflected our commitment to ensure the survival of our members on the fireground, with new programs, initiatives and tools.

Harold A. Schaitberger, IAFF General President

The IAFF thanks all that participated in the 20th Redmond Symposium. 

We will continue to provide IAFF affiliate departments with the tools necessary to prevent fire fighter fatalities, injuries and illnesses. The IAFF and the John P. Redmond Foundation are committed to continuing the fight to make this job safer and have been on the frontline in every major health and safety initiative in the fire service.
