A grateful thank you to the Florida Fire Chief Foundation who presented the FFSHC with $5,000 to support our mission. The FFSHC was proud to assist in the planning committee for the FFCA Safety & Health Conference as well as presenting the Clinician Awareness Course at the conference. The conference was a huge success with renowned speakers on firefighter cancer prevention, health & fitness, firefighter safety, and mental wellness.

Many thanks to the leadership and personnel of Ten 8 Fire Equipment, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, our FFSHC FACE Team and the Firefighter Cancer Support Network, Florida Chapter. Of course the many fire departments on the west coast and those that traveled from as far away as the Panhandle and Palm Beach County Florida.  With a special thanks to Southern Manatee Fire Department who helped coordinate much of the effort.

This places the State of Florida in a leading role nationally with a high bar of providing 4550 decontamination buckets to as many suppression apparatus and training facilities covering the state.

On October 24 members of our FFSHC team were honored to present at Orange County Fire Authority in California at the Behavioral Health Conference.

Presentation by Kimberly Lightley,  US Forestry wildland Firefighter and her story of survival at Storm King Mountain is absolutely amazing and inspirational.

(Ret) FDNY Chief Krebbs and Frank Ungaro  shared their role after 9-11 and how this call continues to effect the members of the FDNY.
