Firefighters agreement with the public has always been that we willingly get sick and place ourselves in harms way for the general public. In return, the general public helps us get well in the form of Health Benefits. This unwritten agreement has long been understood by first responders and taxpayer alike and worked magnificently for the greater good of our communities. The New Jersey State FMBA has created a website, wwww.firefighterfactsnj.org, to help the public understand the risks firefighters face will doing their job. Please take the time to visit this website and learn more about those health risks.
