About The AFFF Lawsuit

Were You or a Loved One Diagnosed with Cancer After Exposure to Firefighting Foam?

Known officially as aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF), firefighting foam creates a blanket that cuts off the fuel from the oxygen it needs to burn. To help smother the fire, chemicals known as perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) were, and in some circumstances, still are used. PFAS are non-biodegradable, stay in the body for a very long time, and have been linked to an increased risk of cancer.

Major health organizations like The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the American Cancer Society (ACS) have noted that certain PFAS may be linked to cancer in firefighters. In fact, the EPA has classified PFAS as “emerging contaminants” meaning they are likely dangerous to human health.

Manufacturers are alleged to have knowingly used PFAS since the 1950s to develop and sell firefighting foam, putting individuals that work directly with the chemicals at a higher risk of exposure to AFFF. Those who served as airport or military firefighters are at particularly high risk of PFAS exposure. Until 2018, the Federal Airport Administration (FAA) required airports to use PFA-containing foam following U.S. Navy guidelines. The U.S. Navy and other branches of the military are also at higher risk of exposure.


Today, the companies that produced firefighting foams with PFAS are coming under legal and medical scrutiny. 3M, the manufacturer credited with first producing this firefighting foam, was aware the foam was dangerous for more than 40 years and did nothing. The company had records showing the dangers PFAS presented to people & the environment dating back to 1970. However, they hid this information from the public. Furthermore, when 3M sold the chemicals to DuPont, they included the label "Cancer Warning: Contains a chemical which can cause cancer."

Health Impacts

Well-known health authorities like the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the American Cancer Society (ACS) have recognized potential connections between certain PFAS chemicals and cancer risks for firefighters.
