PERSONAL EXPOSURE REPORTING SYSTEM
California Professional Firefighters' Online System for Documenting Exposures
Most firefighters don't need to be reminded about the risks of the job. But the risks don't end when the fire goes out.
Even when the call doesn't involve flames, firefighters risk exposure to a broad range of environmental and biological toxins. Because of this, firefighters and EMTs are at dramatically greater risk of contracting cancer, tuberculosis, and other blood-borne diseases. California's cancer and tuberculosis presumption laws require that firefighters document occupational exposures to hazardous agents.
In short, you need proof!
CPF's Personal Exposure Reporting System meets the linkage requirements for cancer. It meets the test for proving exposure in rebuttable presumption cases. And by documenting exposures and their effects, the PER system furthers efforts aimed at prevention.
