Fire Chief Digital: Cancer in the fire service
The spring 2016 issue focuses on research, laws and the link between firefighting and cancer
The spring Fire Chief Digital Edition, a quarterly special editorial supplement from Fire Chief and FireRescue1, focuses on one of the biggest issues afflicting the fire service at all levels: cancer.
In this special report, we examine the issue of cancer in the fire service from multiple angles. Former Fire Chief Brian McQueen shares his personal battle with cancer and asks everyone in the fire service to improve their focus on detection and prevention.
Also, International Firefighter Cancer Foundation President Cindy Ell talks about firefighter cancer laws, what they cover and how they differ from state to state. And Sara Jahnke delves into firefighter cancer research and explains how the data we already have can guide prevention efforts.
