RFS members invited to participate in research about smoke exposure on eyes


The University of NSW invites RFS members to participate in a research survey to investigate whether repeated bush fire smoke exposure increases the risk of problems at the surface of the eye.

The researchers are seeking RFS members who have not been exposed to bush fire smoke. This group could be staff members (HQ, AC or District) or members of support brigades, peer support, etc. 

Participation will require you to attend the University of New South Wales, Randwick (Sydney) campus for a single visit of up to 60 minutes. You will receive a $20 supermarket voucher for your participation, which will help provide new knowledge on whether repeated exposure to smoke has an impact on eye health.

The flyer containing further information, including QR codes to the online consent forms, can be downloaded here or email suki.jaiswal@unsw.edu.au at UNSW
