The Association is building a database of Minnesota firefighter cancer occurrences to include specific demographics and rates of cancer among our members. This data is key in providing better benefits and enacting laws to protect members. We are asking Minnesota firefighters to voluntarily help build information on this tragic disease. If you have any type of cancer, or are a survivor, and are a career or volunteer/paid-on-call firefighter in Minnesota, we need your help. Please take five minutes to complete the following questionnaire. The database does not contain identifying information of the contributors.

Information requested in this survey is to assist with advancement and improvement of Minnesota First Responder health and safety programs, services, resources and legislation. Information received is confidential and any public reporting of statistics gathered will represent general trending.
