January rear-view: Hamlin ‘takes,’ tattoo controversy, giving life beyond death
The big stories, hot takes and moments that moved us from the month
On this episode of the Better Every Shift podcast, Zam and Janelle dig into three of the big stories of the month:
- Damar Hamlin’s medical emergency live on Monday Night Football – and the many “takes” that followed;
- Controversy over an Alabama firefighter whose tattoo and hair prompted complaints that ultimately led to her dismissal; and
- The touching story of the fallen FDNY firefighter whose organ donation saved multiple lives, including two retired FDNY members.
We also recognize Firefighter Cancer Awareness Month and offer simple tips for talking to your doctor about the unique health risks firefighters face on the job.
