Maury Posted May 21, 2016 Report Share Posted May 21, 2016 Interesting to note that the RCMP are looking into smoke inhalation by members involved in the Ft. Mac fire. That and people not being allowed home due to air quality issues among other things. As helicopter pilots spend great amounts of time in smoke, often much more extreme than many would believe, I have to wonder if there has ever been any compensation awarded to a pilot that may have acquired cancer or emphysema or some such disease. I know that I have suffered headaches after a long stretch of bucketing in the smoke. I am not sure if compensation is available to fire fighters, whether it be the "city" type or the forestry guys. Comments anyone? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
