January 2021 is Firefighter Cancer Awareness Month!
How many more firefighters have to die of cancer? How many more firefighters will have to miss out on important life events and holidays with their families because of a cancer diagnosis? How many more firefighters will have to retire early because their career was cut short because of occupational cancer? The answer to all of these questions should be ZERO. Yet, firefighter occupational cancer is the leading cause of line-of-duty death.
The Firefighter Cancer Support Network is excited to announce our partnership with the International Association of Fire Fighters. We are teaming up for the entire month of January and beyond to affect positive change and educate firefighters across the nation about occupational cancer and how to stop it. Would you or someone you know benefit from joining us on this month-long journey? Sign up for the email list here!
The campaign, which kicks off January 4th, draws attention to the scope of the cancer problem in the fire service, and focuses on education, best practices for prevention and helping survivors of occupational cancer. Resources include safety stand downs, daily training briefs, fact sheets and other tools for prevention and mitigation.
We invite you to share the link to sign up for our email list, follow our social media outlets, listen to our podcasts, participate in our Safety Stand Downs, and follow our training briefs and help us win this fight against cancer. Together we can make a difference.
