Cancer is killing firefighters. In the past decade, more firefighters have died from cancer than running into burning buildings, saving communities from hazardous waste spills, or protecting neighborhoods from active shooter situations.
The International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF) is holding a national Cancer Summit focused on the latest science linking cancer and firefighting. Live from the summit in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, IAFF General President Harold Schaitberger speaks live Fire Engineering Editor in Chief Bobby Halton about the issue of cancer and the fire service. Watch the interview, which will take place Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 4:30 p.m. Eastern, in the player above.
