Exposure to toxic material is a significant risk for firefighters. Toxic materials come in many forms, including microscopic airborne particles. An example of this is the toxic dust that many first responders were exposed to during their heroic efforts at the World Trade Center following 9/11. The effects of this exposure may take months or even years to be detected in the form of respiratory ailments or certain types of cancer.
