  • NYSDOH/NIOSH WTC investigation

    I got the following email from the USFA email list today in case anyone needs the info:

    This is an automated message from the Department of Homeland Security/U.S. Fire Administration. Please do not reply. You may submit your comments or request additional information by contacting USFA through our Web site at: http://www.usfa.dhs.gov/applications/feedback/

    The following announcement is provided to usfa-firefighters list subscribers for informational purposes only.

    The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) in cooperation with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is studying deaths among any person who worked at the World Trade Center
    (WTC) disaster site between September 11, 2001 and June 30, 2002. The WTC Responders Fatality Investigation Program is collecting information on any fatality to a WTC responder or volunteer that has occurred since September 12, 2001. The information collected will be used to improve the understanding of the deaths occurring among WTC responders. This may be helpful in improving the medical treatment of individuals who are currently experiencing, or may in the future experience, adverse health effects associated with WTC exposures.

    We are seeking information about the deceased person including their name, date of birth, gender, race, etc., as well as the cause of their death, health before and after responding to the WTC disaster, and details of their exposures at the WTC disaster site and other work-related exposures. The information collected during the study will be used to improve the medical community's understanding of these deaths, which may be helpful for improving the medical treatment of people who are experiencing illnesses as a result of WTC exposure. No information about the person will be released.

    Information on deaths can be e-mailed to [email protected] or mailed to:

    547 River St.
    Troy, NY 12180
