Two significant health concerns in the emergency service community are heart attacks and cancer.  Many emergency service personnel are aware of line of duty heart-related deaths and the studies linking certain forms of cancer to fire service-related exposures.

While the number of heart attacks and cancer associated with emergency duty cannot be fully documented, there is no doubt as to the number of Americans suffering a heart attack or being diagnosed with cancer.  According to Consumer Reports Health organization, every year about 1.3 million Americans have a heart attack with about 66 percent surviving.
