CANCER HAS BECOME THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH FOR FIREFIGHTERS!
Between 2002 and 2017 61% of firefighter deaths were attributed to occupational cancer. FIREFIGHTERS have a 9 % greater chance of getting cancer than their civilian counterparts, and a 14% increased risk of dying from that cancer.
The FireK mission: 1) Support the individual financial needs of firefighters battling cancer, 2) Provide no-cost preemptive screenings to firefighters that meets NFPA and IAFC recommendations, 3) Connect firefighters with the resources they need to prevent, reduce, and battle cancer risks.
Thank you for joining our family of Heroes!!
