Cancer in the Fire Service

Blog Post created by kcaponigro Employee on May 31, 2017

Cancer affecting members of the fire service is top of mind at NFPA. We are addressing this issue at our annual conference this year with a dedicated First Responders Health Forum, and the May/June issue of NFPA Journal covers this topic from different angles.


NFPA's First Responder Segment Director, Ken Willette, recently held a live Q&A session discussing this topic. Check out the video clip here (you must be logged in to Xchange to view!)


We'd like to hear from you on this topic:


  • Does your department specifically address this issue?
  • Do you feel NFPA codes and standards help in this area?
