One of our main goals is to educate firefighters about the risk that cancer poses to them and how they can do to protect themselves.
We need to collectively shift the culture in the fire service to value clean gear. For many years, dirty firefighting gear was a badge of honor. Now we know better, and it's time to start adopting a different mindset. Go to battle, get dirty, fight the fire, knock it down. But then, return home to the station and get clean.
THE BIGGEST GOAL
The biggest goal of all is to reduce the incidence of occupational cancer in the fire service.
