We have growing optimism that the legislature may pass a cancer presumption. Multiple studies continue to document a near epidemic of cancer in fire service. Both Dade and Palm Beach County have experienced very high levels of cancer in active and retired firefighters, further suggesting an occupational cause to this horrible disease. Although these claims are complicated due to the current state of workers’ compensation law, we will continue to take occupational cancer claims for firefighters everywhere in Florida and expend resources to push for a long overdue cancer presumption in the legislature. As of November 2015, the Firefighter Cancer Presumption Bill (SB 456-Latvala) was reported favorably out of the Senate Community Affairs Committee.
