Local 36 Hosts Cancer Screening For Members

Did you know firefighting is a group 1 carcinogen? THAT'S SERIOUS! Last week, the DC Firefighters Association hosted United Diagnostic Services, LLC in-house to screen our members for Cancer and other dangerous issues firefighting has been proven to cause. Over 150 Members paid out of their own pocket for these scans to ensure they are in the best health for their families. Local 36 will continue to push to make these scans and other resources part of our department-provided physicals. Early detection is key!
