The award was made under the Public Safety Officers program, which has previously granted benefits only to families of law enforcement officers killed as a result of shooting or similar physical assaults or accidents on the job. Diseases contracted due to exposure on the job are compensable under the terms of the program, but it appears that no prior similar award has been made.
