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


FCSN has partnered with the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) to create the Fire Fighter Cancer Awareness Month in January.  The purpose of FFCAM is to deliver targeted education about best practices and resources to reduce the impact of cancer on firefighters.  The month-long campaign includes safety stand downs, training briefs meant to highlight the effects of occupational cancer and focus on topics of prevention and mitigation. The topics of these briefs include: the scope of the cancer problem, best practices on prevention, leadership tactics to help prevention and skills to help survivors of occupational cancer.
