My father is a retired fireman battling Parkinson's. He started out at the Philadelphia airport. Fought the Gulf refinery fires in the 70's and was part of the 1st Haz Mat unit. He was diagnosed a year ago and I can't believe how severe and quickly this disease has progressed. He was golfing 10 months ago and now he gets "stuck", falls often. None of us were prepared at how fast he his declining. All for being a 1st responder

It is only fair for firefighters to receive this benefit. They risk their lives for the rest of us every day.

I’m a firefighter in NY and we need to cover hazardous conditions which are directly linked to sicknesses and diseases that come from exposure.
