In this episode, host Kevin Ferrara talks about his recent presentation at the 4th Annual Firefighter Health and Wellness Conference in "exotic" Beavercreek, Ohio where firefighters from 14 states converged to obtain information and listen to industry experts talk about health and safety.
The focus of Kevin's presentation was on PFAS exposure to military and DoD firefighters and what the DoD is lacking with respect to minimizing unnecessary exposure and health care for those exposed.
Throughout this episode, Kevin gives audience members an insight as to the severity of PFAS exposure to military personnel, in particular firefighters and their families. Additionally, Kevin highlights how the DoD continues to refuse to publicly speak about PFAS contamination.
