  • APFF Gears Up for Fight at Capitol
    Updated On: Feb 10, 2015

    10FEB15-  The Arkansas Professional Fire Fighters Association convenes for it's 2015 Legislative Conference.

    Union firefighters from around the state met today at the IAFF Local #34 lodge for the beginning of their 2015 efforts at the state capitol.  The Legislative Convention is scheduled to run three days.

    The front-running issue for Arkansas firefighters:  House Bill 1274, which introduces a presumptive cancer clause into the laws regarding line of duty death due to certain cancers.  At this time, a firefighter who dies from cancer caused by exposure while on the job would be ineligible to receive any of the Line of Duty Death benefits unless his/her family was able to conclusively prove that the cancer was a direct cause of exposure while on the job.

    A Presumptive Cancer clause would change this for certain cancer types that have been clearly identified by the medical community as being more prevalent amongst line firefighters.

    At this time, 42 of the United States have a presumptive cancer clause of some sort regarding firefighters.  Arkansas is one that doesn't.

    Check later for updates as these issues develop.
