Los Angeles Firefighters Oppose Cell Towers on Their Fire Stations Because of The Hazardous Radiation

Firefighters Compare Cell Tower Radiation to Cigarettes

Sunday, April 16, 2017

“As firefighters and paramedics, we live in these firehouses. What effect will these towers have on us? What are the risks to our neighbors? It’s a no-brainer that LA County should at least have done a proper study before before putting 200-foot high-power microwave antennas on top of our heads.”

– Dave Gillotte, Active Duty Fire Captain
  President, LA County Firefighters Local 1014

Listen to the President of Los Angeles Firefighter Union Local 1014  in this
video of his testimony to the LA Board of Supervisors. The firefighters found out cell antennae were going up on their stations through a program called LARICS

Firefighters living next to cell towers suffer severe neurological damage. Emission levels were only .1% – .2% of FCC “safe” exposure limits

Position on the Health Effects from Radio Frequency/Microwave (RF/MW) Radiation in Fire Department Facilities from Base Stations for Antennas and Towers for the Conduction of Cell Phone Transmissions

“The International Association of Fire Fighters’ position on locating cell towers commercial wireless infrastructure on fire department facilities, as adopted by its membership in August 2004 (1), is that the IAFF oppose the use of fire stations as base stations for towers and/or antennas for the conduction of cell phone transmissions until a study with the highest scientific merit and integrity on health effects of exposure to low-intensity RF/MW radiation is conducted and it is proven that such sitings are not hazardous to the health of our members.  Read more :,82,2232

” In 2004, the US and Canadian membership of the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) passed a resolution opposing the siting of cell tower antennas on or adjacent to fire stations.  This resolution was inspired by a pilot medical study which raised serious concerns about the safety of fire fighters working and sleeping in stations with towers on the premises. The study, conducted by Dr. Gunnar Heuser of Agoura Hills, California, focused on neurological symptoms of six firefighters who had been working for up to five years in stations with cell towers. Their symptoms included: slowed reaction time, lack of focus, lack of impulse control, severe headaches, anesthesia-like sleep, sleep deprivation, depression and tremors. [56]

     Dr. Heuser, along with Dr. J. Michael Uszler of Santa Monica,  used functional brain scans to assess changes in the brains of the six firefighters, as compared to healthy brains of men of the same age.  These SPECT scans revealed a pattern of abnormal changes concentrated over a wider area than would normally be seen in the brains of individuals exposed to toxic inhalation, as might be expected from fighting fires.  Dr. Heuser confirmed that the only plausible explanation would be the chronic RF radiation exposure. Additional TOVA testing of the same six firefighters confirmed: delayed reaction time, lack of impulse control, and difficulty in maintaining mental focus, just as they had reported. [57] 
     IAFF’s Resolution Number 15, dated August 2004, explains impressively what living and/or working in a KILL ZONEmeans for the health of Americans who have been “chosen” for sacrifice by the Wi-Industry.  IAFF RESOLUTION “
