The Hamilton Professional Fire Fighters Association has renamed our Occupational Health and Exposure Program after the late Walter Baumann. Following the Plastimet fire, Walter worked tirelessly to gain support from City Council for a 25 year program to monitor the health of the Hamilton fire fighters. After gaining Council’s support, he helped develop and administer the program until his untimely passing. The program is now being pursued throughout the Province as a best practice. Walters legacy will live on through all Hamilton and Ontario fire fighters.
