Studies have shown that firefighters have an increased risk of certain cancers the longer they spend working in the fire service.
In order to help mitigate this, firefighters and fire officers must take steps to protect themselves and others by wearing their personal protective equipment (PPE) in the proper way and at the right times.
In this course, we will explore the common cancer-causing agents firefighters may face on the job as well as the importance of wearing proper PPE and using decontamination techniques to help reduce exposure to toxic substances and increase firefighter health and quality of life.
