The Centers for Disease Control's National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health will hold two town halls in Arlington next week to answer questions about the health program for first responders to the Pentagon on 9/11, U.S. Rep. Jim Moran announced this week.
Earlier this year, the World Trade Center Health Program expanded its coverage to include rescue, recovery and cleanup workers who served at the Pentagon and in Shanksville, Pa.
Enrollment started in May. Nearly 1,500 people were expected to enroll when the expansion was announced, according to Bloomberg News.
According to the CDC's eligibility requirements, the expansion includes active and retired fire and emergency personnel; active or retired police department employees; recovery or cleanup workers and contractors; and volunteers, including the American Red Cross.
The town halls will be Aug. 28 and 29:
7 p.m. Aug. 28: Arlington Fire Department Station 6 — Falls Church Station, 6950 Little Falls Road, Arlington
11 a.m. Aug. 29: Arlington Central Library, second floor, 1015 N. Quincy St., Arlington
