This page was developed with the intent of providing a quick and ready resource for information that could be of benefit not only to the employees for the Township but for persons in our community that may have similar health and safety concerns.  Aside from those documents that have been developed to address health and safety issues in the workplace for the Township, the page will also include articles and information that have been developed elsewhere but which could be of relevance to the employees and the community at large.

If you are involved with an association whose mandate includes a public awareness or educational component respecting a health or safety issue, you may forward a request to the Webmaster to add a link to this site.

Asbestos Poisoning

Firefighters are one of many occupational groups that are at risk of asbestos exposure. Most come in contact with asbestos during the time that they spend in or around a burning building that was constructed with asbestos.

The Pleural Mesothelioma Center is an association dedicated to help those that have been diagnosed with "Asbestosis" and "Pleural Mesothelioma" being a form of lung cancer.  This association provides free resources and works with individuals and their families to help them find local doctors, treatment centers and support groups.  They have created a website that contains extensive prognosis and support information which can be found at www.pleuralmesothelioma.com.

For additional information on mesothelioma cancer and your rights to compensation, please contact MesotheliomaFund.com
