The VCOS & NVFC Joint Cancer Committee, with support from the NFFF Cancer Alliance, will develop and release a ribbon report for the fire, rescue and EMS services with 10 cancer commandments for every firefighter and EMS responder to live by.

This webinar introduced the concepts behind the ribbon report and the need for each of us to take personal responsibility to limit exposure to carcinogens we encounter daily. 


  • Learn how cancer is an epidemic in the fire/EMS industry
  • Hear about the next two webinars about how you can impact the way this epidemic affects you
  • Get information on two additional webinars in March and May 2018 that will each detail five of the 10 cancer commandments
  • Discuss goals to release the full Ribbon Report at FRI 2018 in Dallas
