Online Learning for Firefighters
Cancer is the leading cause of death for firefighters. Early detection increases survivability and minimizes invasive treatment.
When it comes to cancer, response time matters!
There are many different reasons for cancer deaths, but one of the most important factors is the stage of cancer when it is first diagnosed. That is why DetecTogether wants you to learn how important your own role is in detecting cancer early. You can give yourself an advantage by being an active partner in your own health care. Healthcare is a team sport and you have an important role to play.
