Since 2005, the nonprofit Firefighter Cancer Support Network (FCSN) has provided assistance and one-on-one mentoring to thousands of cancer-stricken firefighters and their families. FCSN also delivers firefighters cancer awareness and prevention training nationwide.
Videos, Training Briefs, and Education Presentations are provided courtesy of the Firefighter Cancer Support Network. The daily Training Briefs and Education Presentation Training Modules are good discussion tools for firefighters to help educate themselves on reducing the risk of occupational cancer. We encourage firefighters to take advantage of these training tools.
