An “explainer” digging into a tough topic: cancer in the fire service.
Everyone knows firefighters face risk as part of their jobs. But they also face an unseen and often unspoken risk, one that comes long after the fire: cancer.
Produced for the Firefighter Cancer Alliance, this video explores the emerging understanding of occupational cancer in the American fire service, and outlines the basic steps that every firefighter can take to reduce their risk.
