Health Evaluation Report 87-352-2097; International Association of Fire Fighters Anaheim, California [open pdf - 229KB]
"The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) was contacted by the health and safety department of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) in 1987 and requested to conduct medical screening tests on the approximately 800 fire fighters who would be attending their convention in Anaheim, California. During October 18-22, 1987, NIOSH conducted audiometric testing on 333 fire fighters attending the Ninth Redmond Symposium on Occupational Health and Hazards of the Fire Service. Pulmonary function tests (PFT) were also conducted on an equal number of fire fighters attending the symposium. The results of the PFT examinations were sent to the individual fire fighters who had participated in the screening, but further population analyses of the PFT data were not conducted, based on a determination by NIOSH medical personnel."
