49 active and retired firefighters in San Jose, California filed two lawsuits against major chemical manufacturers like 3M and DuPont.

The firefighters accuse the manufacturers of knowingly providing them with gear and substances that contain harmful per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, also known as PFAS.

PFAS are linked to cancer and various other health conditions. The firefighters believe they deserve compensation for their interaction with the harmful substance.
