Cancer Doesn’t Discriminate: Learn How You Can Prevent Firefighter Cancer

Early Registration for Fire Service Occupational Cancer Symposium Closes May 31

Cancer Doesn’t Discriminate

As the number of firefighters affected by occupational cancer steadily increases, improving education, prevention measures and support are imperative. As part of this effort, the Fire Service Occupational Cancer Alliance (FSOCA) is hosting the Fire Service Occupational Cancer Symposium in Phoenix, Arizona September 7-8, 2017.

“Cancer doesn’t discriminate based on whether you work in a career, volunteer, combination or wildland fire department,” said Chief Dennis Compton, FSOCA Lead Facilitator. “This symposium will address pertinent issues that will help all of us become better educated and proactive in battling this insidious disease. Come share and learn with firefighters, fire officers, researchers, medical professionals, trainers, and many others.”

Register by May 31 and pay only $200. Beginning June 1, the registration fee increases to $250. All registrations must be completed by July 31, 2017. Go to www.firehero.org/cancer-symposium-2017/ today to register.
