"Barry Brady Act" Pre-Employment Physical Medical Examination Waivers

Summary: 
These forms are templates for a city to consider when developing their own waiver forms for potential firefighters to waive the inclusion of cancer screening regarding the employment related firefighter cancer rebuttable presumption established by the Barry Brady Act as part of a pre-employment physical examination, or for current firefighters to elect to have the physical examination. MTAS recommends that cities discuss this with their city attorney before implementing any waiver.
