In a recent article from the magazine of the National fire Protection Associations, there’s a great article about the way firefighting has changed though the years since the launch of the Fire Department Occupational Safety and Health Program.
This is very much related to what the Fire Foundation is about. Firefighter Health and Wellness and fitness and injury prevention. The top three killers of firefighters: cardiac, cancer and mental health. Cancer is overtaking cardiac as number one and this year, sadly, more firefighters will take their own lives than will be killed battling fires.
