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.

On April 5thover 80 fire service and private industry leaders joined together at the first regional meeting of the Northwest FFSHC. Thanks to Chief Talbert and Cpt Brian Hughes for organizaing the launch, complete with presentations from Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, FFSHC Directors, and the Firefighter Cancer Support Network.

Members from the State FACE Team, Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center and the Redline Sisterhood all joined together to march in the 50th Annual St Patrick’s Day Parade to pay honor to those firefighters who have passed from cancer and those still in the fight.  This was a great opportunity to join together – One Team, One Fight while raising awareness for firefighter cancer to a crowd of over 80,000.
