Thank you to Jeremy Hurd for organizing the FFSHC Southeast Regional Safety Stand Down at Palm Beach County Fire Rescue. The free 3 day event held June 18 – 20 included classes covering firefighter cancer prevention, leadership, mental wellness, firefighter safety and health and fitness.
This year’s theme was BE AWARE – GET CHECKED. Firefighters face many risks such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, PTSD, and more, and early detection through annual medical evaluations and physicals saves lives.
A special thanks to our vendors who provided food and snacks – Lexipol, Ten-8 Fire Equipment, Lumiere Healing Centers, and Elan Recovery & Wellness.
