At Firefighters & EMS Fund, we keep up to date on the hot button issues and state of the Fire & EMS industry, including important legislative issues, staffing or funding issues, and threats to the health of our nation’s firefighters.
With so many issues facing firefighters, we want to hear from them directly on the issues that matter most.
In our survey, we ask respondents if they are firefighters. If so, we ask these additional questions below, paired with the possible response options they will receive:
