"In May 1983, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a request from the International Association of Fire Fighters to evaluate the potential health hazards to firefighters from the Orange County Fire Department in Orlando, Florida, responding to a fire involving burning pesticides at a nursery warehouse on May 5, 1983. [...] Based on the information collected during this survey, firefighters experienced acute illness, apparently caused by smoke and chemical inhalation at the nursery warehouse fire on May 5, 1983. Recommendations concerning protective measures, medical surveillance and planning for potential future exposures are made in Section VII of this report."
