Save the Date: Firefighter Health Forum

MnFIRE is proud to present the inaugural Firefighter Health Forum, a gathering of cardiac, cancer and mental health experts and fire service leaders to share the latest information, in-depth research and techniques related to firefighter health. This new event will create local and national opportunities for collaboration.

On the heels of the Minnesota legislature passing the most comprehensive firefighter well-being legislation in the nation, the Hometown Heroes Assistance Program, comes this first-ever educational forum specifically focused on protecting and supporting Minnesota firefighter health.

Join us in April!

This important and exclusive two-day symposium will take place April 22-23, 2022, at the JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America. The forum will feature four distinct tracks for fire service leaders, medical providers, mental health providers and peer supporters.

Stay tuned for more details, including registration information, session topics and more. If you have any questions in the meantime, contact MnFIRE’s Director of Program Delivery DeeDee Jankovich at djankovich@mnfireinitiative.com or call 888-784-6634.

The fire service comes with its own unique stress, and the important work we do can quickly weigh on us emotionally. But confidential peer support, counseling sessions with specialized mental health professionals and other mental health resources are always available to Minnesota firefighters and their families, at no cost to them through the MnFIRE Assistance Program.
