City of Orlando Hepatitis C Update

Orlando, FL – The firefighter’s union in Orlando and the city of Orlando are now at odds over the medical release form the city e-mailed to firefighters so that the city could review firefighters’ medical histories. The firefighters’ union claims that the language in the release form allows the city to make public information within the records. The union has advised city firefighters not to sign the releases and said it never agreed to the language used in the release form.

This latest dispute revolves around allegations that the city withheld vital medical information regarding long-term illnesses from firefighters for more than 20 years.
