DHS/AFG-funded studies on fire fighter safety and health relate directly to the IAFF priority to help fire fighters and paramedics live longer and healthier lives. Fire fighter-related research is essential to securing the nation's infrastructure and security and to reduce the rate of injury and early death among fire fighters and paramedics. This event will be held for two days and allows registrants to drop in on topics regarding on going research that will affect the way fire fighters live and work. A schedule of topics will be provided on site.
