CFO Jimmy Patronis: Fighting to Protect Florida’s Firefighters from Cancer

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis issued the following statement on the passage of Senate Bill 1092 by Senator Aaron Bean in its final committee of reference and is moving to the Senate Floor. This bill, along with House Bill 487 by Representative Elizabeth Fetterhoff, builds on CFO and State Fire Marshal Patronis’ cancer prevention initiative to protect Florida’s firefighters by creating the Firefighter Cancer Decontamination Equipment Grant Program.
CFO and State Fire Marshal Jimmy Patronis said, “I thank Senator Aaron Bean and Representative Elizabeth Fetterhoff for stepping up for our firefighters and sending this meaningful legislation to the Senate and House Floors. Last year, we successfully fought to give firefighters the coverage they need to battle cancer and now we’re one step closer to providing these heroes with the resources and equipment needed to prevent this deadly disease. Florida continues to send a clear message: We stand with our brave firefighters in their fight against cancer.”
