Issued September 25, 2006
Washington, D.C. —- A new qualitative risk assessment conducted by SWI staff, prompted in part by the recent confirmation of severe lung disorders among first responders and firefighters following the World Trade Center terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, indicates an urgent need for preventive intervention steps to be taken among these groups.  SWI is particularly concerned that firefighters – with jobs among the most hazardous in society – are in danger of suffering serious illness derivative of synergies among electro-magnetic radiation, toxic chemical exposures, biological disease agents, and debilitating post-traumatic stress.  The problem is further exacerbated by both the continually growing dependence of emergency responders on wireless communications and the tendency of current wireless infrastructure build-out to include firehouses and other emergency triage units.
