We are glad to pass on that after many months of development, testing, and refinement, the National Firefighter Registry (NFR) is open for registration. The NFR is the largest effort ever undertaken to understand the facts and reduce the risk of cancer among all U.S. Firefighters.
MY PERSONAL ONE MINUTE MESSAGE TO YOU ABOUT THE NFR:
PLS WATCH THIS 90 SEC VIDEO ABOUT THE NFR:
The NFR is actively recruiting all U.S. firefighters – paid and volunteer, active and retired, with and without cancer, to help researchers better understand and reduce cancer in the profession.
Firefighters can join the NFR through NIOSH’s secure web portal. Participation is voluntary and registration takes about 30 minutes. NIOSH will match the information provided by participating firefighters with cancer diagnosis information from state cancer registries. This data will help NIOSH study the relationship between firefighting and cancer outcomes over time.

Be sure to also check out UL’s online training course, “Comprehensive Cancer Prevention Strategies for the Fire Service,” that was originally launched last fall now includes a demonstration of how to register for the NFR. https://training.fsri.

Take Care. Be Careful. Pass It On.
