Firefighting foam commonly contains PFAS.

Last spring, the legislature passed a bill to reduce the use of ‘forever chemicals’ polyfluoroalkyl (PFAS) in firefighting foam and allow the use of alternatives to hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs) in new construction. These measures would have helped keep our water clean, reduce greenhouse gas pollution, and protect the health of firefighters and all Alaskans. Governor Dunleavy vetoed the bill. Ask your legislators to override the veto and protect our water.
