OUR MISSION

The Association of Fire Districts of the State of New York, a not-for-profit corporation, works to improve the fiscal responsibility, efficiency and effectiveness of the fire district management through education, training and advocacy for commissioners and other fire district officials in the 57 counties outside of the City of New York.

First Study in US of Cancer Among Volunteer Firefighters

To make the study scientifically valid, we need data from at least 50,000 current and former volunteer firefighters.  Once completed the study will assist the medical community to design effective cancer prevention, treatment and screening programs for volunteer firefighters.

A team of researchers from Northwell Heath are conducting the study for FASNY and they need your help.  Any data collect will be held in a secure database and will NOT BE SHARED with anyone else.  All members of the fire department can participate regardless of heath status.  

NO personal medical information is being requested.
