Not in Our House Campaign launch at FDIC 2017
While there is very little data on volunteer firefighters and their incidence of cancer, it is no longer a debate that there is a connection between paid/career firefighting and occupational cancer. Since 2002, the IAFF has recognized more than 60% of the firefighters added to the memorial for line-of-duty deaths have died of cancer – more than any other cause.
Not in Our House wants to bring awareness to the risk firefighters face.
Join our kickoff of the Not in Our House campaign at FDIC Booth #1222.
