After attending the Cancer Symposium here in Phoenix. I'm making it a point to keep the information flowing through our department about cancer prevention.
To help bring cancer awareness to the fire service, along with helping to change the culture that dirty gear is cool to wear. Also making sure that the next generation of firefighters are being taught the right way about taking care of themselves.
