Cancer Awareness

The goal of the Cancer Awareness course is to educate IAFF members about their increased risk of developing occupational cancer in the fire service. The most prominent types of cancer that affect fire fighters will be identified. In addition, you'll review the top carcinogens in the firefighting environment and identify the major routes of exposure. Members are encouraged to adopt work practices to minimize/prevent exposure to occupational cancer hazards and to adopt healthy lifestyles to reduce their risk of developing cancer. It will also provide information on resources available to IAFF members and their families who are diagnosed with cancer.
