Located between Satellite Beach and Cocoa Beach in Brevard County, Florida, Patrick Air Force Base was built in 1940 as Naval Air Station Banana River. Since military firefighters would use aqueous film-forming foam, commonly known as AFFF, during their training, contamination with PFAS was inevitable.
Therefore, if you were stationed on Patrick Air Force Base for at least 1 cumulative year and developed a serious disease as a result of toxic exposure, you can file a claim to recover the compensation you deserve for your injury.
In 2017, the Environmental Protection Agency found over 4.3 million parts per trillion of PFAS in the drinking water at Patrick Air Force Base, which is considerably above the permissible limit. For this reason, veterans and their family members who lived on base need to pay close attention to their health, as they are at high risk of developing a terrible disease as a consequence of exposure to PFAS. Both PFOS and PFOA were present in the drinking water of Patrick Air Force Base.
