Michigan Association of Fire Fighters

Legislation to help protect the health and safety of firefighters, emergency responders and communities was advanced in the U.S. Senate.

Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) reintroduced the Protecting Firefighters from Adverse Substances (PFAS) Act, which directs federal agencies to develop best practices, training and educational programs to reduce and prevent exposure to PFAS. PFAS are known as 'forever chemicals' since they do not breakdown naturally.
