A firefighter is nearly three times more likely to die from stress or overexertion than from the next leading cause, according to statistics maintained by the U.S. Fire Administration. Firefighter rehabilitation can help lower this tragic statistic.
Cancer caused 61 percent of the career firefighter line-of-duty deaths from January 1, 2002, to December 31, 2016, according to data from the International Association of Fire Fighters (IAFF).
Firefighter decontamination can help lower this tragic statistic.
Providing incident rehabilitative services and fireground carcinogenic decontamination is a vital health and safety service that the members of the Metro Richmond Flying Squad Rehabilitation Team provides 24/7 – 365 days a year.
