Personal Exposure Reporter
The Personal Exposure Reporter, known as PER, is a free online application that allows firefighters to keep a digital record of on-the-job exposures. Researchers analyze these exposures for cancer risk factors related to firefighting. The PER data collected is maintained solely by the University of Miami and is not shared with any fire service, union membership, or government agency. Any firefighter can create their own PER account by clicking here:
