The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) has created a new animated video to bring attention to the organization’s Serve Strong program and raise awareness about contamination and cancer in the fire service. The video is the second developed by NVFC. The first NVFC video, focused on being fit for the role of firefighter, received excellent feedback and garnered nearly 100,000 views on Facebook.


The challenges that firefighters face are daunting. Maintaining optimal safety and wellness is key for firefighters and EMTs. Serve Strong offers training and resources to support first responders so that they can be strong and healthy. The initiative is centered around the premise that the health and safety choices that firefighters make impact themselves, their departments and the communities that they serve.
