Updates from the front lines in the fight against occupational cancer in the fire service.

The Dickey Foundation Donates to the FCSN

In October, The Dickey Foundation presented a check for $10,000 to the FCSN to support our cancer awareness and education program.  Based in Dallas Texas, the Dickey Foundation proudly supports those who protect and serve.  Their goal is to continuously give first responders and their families the necessary support to ensure their safety and success in the communities they serve. 

The FCSN was represented by Curtis Dunn, FCSN VP of the West and Texas State Director, who was honored to meet Maurine Dickey, Foundation Chairwoman as well as Betsy Orton, Executive Director, Fire Chief Stidham from Arlington Texas, President Mike Glynn, Fort Worth Firefighters, Jonathan Miller, VP of Arlington Firefighters and other Arlington Firefighters.     

“We are so grateful to The Dickey Foundation for their generosity in supporting our Taking Action Against Cancer in the Fire Service to deliver training at fire stations and health and wellness conferences”, said FCSN VP of the West and Texas State Director Curis Dunn.    

Widely hailed as a groundbreaking study and guidebook, the FCSN White Paper, Taking Action Against Cancer in the Fire Service, is considered to be an important resource for individuals and fire departments nationwide to expose, reduce and manage cancer risk. The useful 11 immediate actions help protect firefighters from occupational cancer.
