THE MISSION of the Fire Smoke Coalition is to focus the required attention and resources on the deadly and life-long consequences of breathing fire smoke by teaching firefighters and first responders how to Protect, Detect, Diagnose, and appropriately Treat the exposure if it occurs.
The Coalition is comprised of firefighters, scientists, physicians and subject matter experts, all of whom embrace the challenge of teaching firefighters how to protect themselves, to reduce exposures and ultimately minimize their risks to the diseases, illnesses and deaths associated with today’s deadly fire smoke.
With education ... comes change.
The information contained in this web site will provide you with the absolute need to reduce your exposure to fire smoke and its toxic by-products. While it is absolutely impossible to "prevent" cancer, it is possible to limit your exposure and therefore reduce the risk of cancer, illness and disease. When leadership fails, it is absolutely necessary for you to take every precaution possible to protect yourself from exposure. Start now.
