There is an escalating crisis in the Minnesota fire service – one that is costing our firefighters their lives. The high incidence of illness – particularly cardiac, cancer and mental health challenges – is alarming and requires an immediate response.
Protecting firefighter health starts with firefighters taking steps to take care of themselves, so they can continue protecting communities and the fire service as a whole. Fortunately you now have the opportunity to take your firefighters in an important direction toward protecting themselves and their peers. MnFIRE has been awarded a grant to train all 22,000 Minnesota firefighters to become “MnFIRE Aware” before June 30, 2019.
