Research tells us that firefighters face a higher risk of many types of cancers, especially respiratory, digestive, and urinary system cancers. As the number of firefighters and their families affected by occupational cancer steadily increases, improving education, prevention measures and support are imperative.
As a member organization of the Fire Service Occupational Cancer Alliance, the IAFC leadership encourages you to attend the Fire Service Occupational Cancer Symposium, in Phoenix, Arizona, September 7-8, to learn what steps you and your department can take to reduce the risk of occupational cancers.
Presentations and workshops will cover current research, best practices in prevention strategies, presumptive legislation, available benefits, and other relevant topics. IAFC leaders will be there and we hope you will please plan to join us for these important two days that will help focus attention on this crucial issue.
IAFC's Safety Health and Survival Section and Volunteer and Combination Officers Section are proud partners of the symposium.
Registration must be completed by Monday, July 31.
