In 2015, shocking statistics were released about firefighters battling work-related cancers. Cancers that we believe are preventable. Shortly after we launched the Cancer Awareness and Prevention Program (CAPP) which was founded with the sole purpose to reinforce the best practices of firefighters in the workplace specializing in Clean Air, Clean Body, and Clean Gear. The program included in person or online training videos that are free and accessible to any fire department.
The Cancer Awareness and Prevention Program (CAPP) is a program of FirefighterAid, supported by the San Diego Fire-Rescue Department (SDFD), Local 145, San Diego Fire Relief Association, and the Firefighter Cancer Support Network.
