UFU Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation 24th March 2014

As part of the UFUA continued campaign to advocate and campaign for justice for firefighters with occupational cancer, the UFUA has successfully registered the Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation trademark.

This project is part of the overall campaign to have occupational cancer and firefighting recognised so that all Australian firefighters can access their entitlements including medical assistance and compensation.

To date the Australian Parliament, and the Tasmanian, South Australian and Western Australian state governments have all introduced presumptive legislation recognising the same 12 occupational cancers.

This is an ongoing campaign to have all Australian firefighters, regardless of state or territory, to have the protections of presumptive legislation.

The UFUA's Fire Fighter Cancer Foundation will assist with that ongoing campaign.
