Firefighters are calling upon the Government to compensate their cancer treatments.
They are in Auckland today to push for some cancers to be recognised as occupational, which would pre-qualify them for ACC.
International expert Alex Forrest says the risk of some cancers is more than 100 percent greater for firefighters.
"It's not one fire that kills us - it's hundreds of fires over our career. We're now finding out the cancer risk is more lethal than any other dangers that firefighters face."
