What makes the IAFF/EHN partnership unique?

This exclusive agreement was developed in collaboration between EHN Canada and the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF).

EHN offers an admissions/inquiry line dedicated exclusively to IAFF members (1-888-301-7876). An IAFF member or loved one can call this number directly to learn more about EHN treatment options.
