To ease the modalities of compensation claim of firefighters ailing cancer, a bill has been introduced in the federal parliament which has the support of all major parties.
In support of the bill, Greens MP Adam Bandt said, "Firefighters start out being 20 per cent healthier than the average member of the public but after five years the average firefighter will have twice the risk of contracting leukemia. After several years in the job male firefighters can find themselves up to 10 times more likely of contracting testicular cancer."
