National Firefighter Registry (NFR) for Cancer

How to sign up:

The NFR is actively recruiting all U.S. firefighters – paid and volunteer, active and retired, with and without cancer, to help researchers better understand and reduce cancer in the profession. 

Firefighters can join the NFR through NIOSH’s secure web portal. Participation is voluntary and registration takes about 30 minutes. NIOSH will match the information provided by participating firefighters with cancer diagnosis information from state cancer registries. This data will help NIOSH study the relationship between firefighting and cancer outcomes over time.
