About the AFFF Firefighting Foam Lawsuits

AFFF stands for Aqueous Film-Forming Foam. It is a type of firefighting foam that is used to suppress flammable liquid fires, particularly those involving hydrocarbons. AFFF contains water, fluorochemical surfactants, and other additives. The foam works by forming a thin film on the surface of the flammable liquid, creating a barrier that separates the fuel from the air and suppresses the release of flammable vapors.

Aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF) is a firefighting foam utilized to extinguish flammable liquid pool fires. AFFF contains perfluoroalkyl and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), man-made chemicals known for their water and stain-resistant properties. PFAS persist in the environment and accumulate in the human body, leading to growing concerns about potential health risks, including cancer, thyroid disease, and reproductive problems. Firefighters face particular risks due to AFFF exposure during firefighting operations.
