Cancer is becoming an ever-increasing cause of firefighter deaths. Firefighters have much higher rates of cancer than the residents they serve because of exposure to carcinogens on the fireground and in the firehouse. We have a Regional Offering of Taking Action Against Cancer in Lee Massachusetts on May 15, 2018 at 18:30. This course will provide information on immediate actions that all ranks, from firefighter to chief, can take to reduce the occupational cancer risk and how the nonprofit Firefighter Cancer Support Network can help firefighters cope with cancer. The course will address the importance of promoting a new culture of safety and fitness by developing the mindset that firefighters are tactical athletes, in order to help prevent cancer, heart disease, and injuries within their departments. This course is typically offered specifically for on-duty firefighters – this one in Lee is open to any firefighter that is interested in attending. It also offers three (3) OEMS credits.
