Dear members,

As firefighters, there are unique risk factors associated with the work that you do. We are at elevated risk for certain types of cancer, respiratory issues, arthritis, allergic reactions and depression, often linked with higher suicide rates. Early detection and treatment are critical to addressing these diseases successfully, which is why it’s so important to schedule your Annual Exam.
