Week 3: Best Practices to Reduce Cancer Off-Duty/Personal Life
The past few weeks we’ve covered efforts to reduce cancer both at the fire station and on the fire ground. This week, we will capture risk factors while you are off shift. The materials this week will cover a variety of personal modifiable risk factors you can address both on and off the job to reduce your cancer risk. Some of these factors include tobacco and alcohol use, fitness, nutrition, sleep hygiene, and stress.
Turn knowledge into action. Cancer is a big issue facing the fire service, but you can prevent or limit your exposure to carcinogens.
