Reduce Your Risk

Project Mission

The FDNY’s Reduce Your Risk Project was established in 2017 by the Department’s Contamination Reduction Workgroup to provide for the long-term health and safety of our FDNY family by raising awareness of the dangers of fireground contaminants and implementing practical policies and procedures that best support the central mission and core values of the Department, all while affording members with the tools, equipment, facilities and training that address the acute health concerns facing today’s Firefighters.

Pledge that you will do everything in your power to reduce your risk of contracting occupational cancers, for your health and your loved ones as well. Together, we can improve our own safety and ensure we are here to serve the public we have sworn to protect.


The FDNY and the FDNY Foundation gratefully acknowledge the support of this project by:
