Firefighter Cancer Support Network Releases White Paper on Firefighter Cancer


Sponsored by Honeywell First Responder Products, the Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN) has released a new white paper, "Taking Action Against Cancer in the Fire Service." In late April 2013, FCSN invited a small group of experts to Indianapolis to develop a white paper on cancer in the fire service. In two-and-a-half days, the working group outlined and wrote the initial draft of a white paper describing the status of cancer in the fire service and developed answers to very challenging questions. This report is the result of that working group which was enhanced by the additional review of multiple career and volunteer operational fire companies, additional clinical researchers and medical physicians, other stakeholders and the leadership of the FCSN.
