Ohio's Fire Fighters are dying with their boots off. Numerous medical studies have shown that fire fighters are exposed to smoke that includes soot, chemicals, toxins, and carcinogens when they are called to perform their duties. This "toxic soup" leaves its remnants on fire fighter's skin and gear exposing fire fighters to increased risk of occupational cancer. These same studies identify 13 cancers that fire fighters are being diagnosed with at a much greater rate as a result of their profession.
Senate Bill 27 would provide workers compensation for the fire fighters who are diagnosed with one of those 13 occupational cancers. This coverage would allow fire fighters to receive treatment and return to work, continuing to protect their communities
Local 93 would like to wish brother Sean DeCrane farewell as he has decided to retire.
Sean DeCrane served on the Local 93 executive board for many years and fought for Cleveland firefighter’s rights & safety.
Later in his career, he began advocating for the entire Fire service. Sean has travelled our great nation & other countries around the world, speaking on topics and promoting Firefighter safety!
Battalion Chief DeCrane gets invited to speak & present worldwide , because of his expert knowledge on many topics, but to us, he’ll always be known as “Sean” because of how humble he is and his true display of brotherhood!
