12 Actions to Protect Yourself.
Following fire activities, exposure reporting is necessary to document exposures that can lead to occupational diseases and cancer. The National Fire Operations Reporting System (NFORS) Exposure Tracker is available as an app for fire fighters, paramedics or officers to log exposure and incident details in a private, encrypted and secure online environment. The information gathered will help researchers better understand toxic exposures on the fire scene and develop new treatments and prevention protocols for occupational diseases, including cancer. Download the NFORS Exposure Tracker App by going to the app store on your mobile device.
So, someone in your department or Local has gotten the news of their cancer diagnosis. How do we support him/her? https://www.iafflocal2818.org/misc/chief-i-have-cancer/
So, we've talked about cancer, and the increased risk firefighters face. Starting tomorrow, we'll look at how to protect yourself and mitigate your risk.

Last night and into this morning, Mifflin Township Firefighters along with personnel from other Central Ohio departments responded as part of Central Ohio Strike Team USAR Region 4 Urban Search and Rescue to assist Region 6 USAR and the City of Cincinnati in the search for a victim following a partial building collapse at a construction site in downtown Cincinnati.  COST personnel operated through the night, working on stabilization and search and rescue efforts before being relieved this morning around 06:00. This marks the third COST activation this year, and Mifflin Township firefighters have responded in each instance. Mifflin Township personnel who are part of COST participate in quarterly training to maintain proficiency in urban search and rescue operations. Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with the friends and family affected by this incident. Photo Courtesy J Moore, Plain Township Local 3850.
