Our mission is to prevent firefighter cancer by increasing and sharing best practices designed to minimize risk of carcinogen exposure to our Florida Firefighters.
The purpose of the Firefighters Attacking the Cancer Epidemic (F.A.C.E.) Team is to identify all contributing factors to the alarming cancer rates among the members of the fire service. And with that, to create methods of reducing or eliminating those factors. We will do this through research, education, prevention and support. Our mission will be driven by this one purpose and commitment: to improve the health and lives of fire service personnel.
This team operates under the Florida Firefighters Safety & Health Collaborative and has the support and endorsement of the Florida State Fire College, Florida State Fire Marshals office, Florida Fire Chiefs Association, and Florida Professional Firefighter’s.
