The Aqueous Film Forming Foam (AFFF) aka “Firefoam” and Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) Connection

In the past 20 years, numerous studies have linked the use of AFFF to the release of Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) in the environment.

PFAS in AFFF are toxic and carcinogenic to humans, according to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC).

The use of AFFF has released PFAS into the environment in response to emergency situations in mass quantities and in an uncontrolled manner.


Due to its ability to persist in the environment, PFAS can travel long distances in groundwater without breaking down–this can lead to the contamination of drinking water supplies.

Environmental investigations at military bases, airports and firefighting training facilities have indicated the use of PFAS at these sites and have impacted nearby drinking water supplies.

In addition, firefighters and other individuals using AFFF in training and emergency scenarios are vulnerable to PFAS exposure through direct contact, inhalation, and ingestion of the foam during application.

Health studies have found elevated concentrations of PFAS in the blood of firefighters and elevated rates of cancer among those more highly exposed to AFFF.
