State FACE Recommendations

img_2524.jpeg
In November 2016 we formed a Statewide FACE (Firefighters Attacking the Cancer Epidemic) Team. This team now consists of 14 select and progressive fire departments throughout the State of Florida and is continuing to grow as we bring more regions on board. In addition we have partnered with the prestigious Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at University of Miami Health System and are advised by the Firefighter Cancer Support Network's VP of Education.

We are active in working with agencies such as the Florida Fire Chiefs Association, the State of Florida Fire Marshal’s Office, and the Florida Bureau of Fire Standards and Training to develop and recommend firefighter cancer prevention training curriculum, policies and procedures that can be utilized for the Florida fire service o any other department nationally. These recommendations are built on a foundation that considers the varied needs of any department (large/small, volunteer/career) as we work to minimize our exposure to carcinogens.

Our goal is to become a trusted resource and partner in the state of Florida and beyond. As these collaborative-based recommendations, SOG’s and Procedures are finalized, they will be loaded here for all members to access freely.

Our Statewide FACE Team recommendations are listed in a folder under the Cancer Prevention Resources. The Cancer Prevention Resources also contains many other related SOGs, Policies and Procedures that we have compiled for your use and we thank all the departments that gave permission for us to share this information.
