Re:                         PTSD and Cancer Awareness.


The IAFF issued a Safety Stand Down Alert last Wednesday January 28th regarding two webcasts streamed online from the IAFF ALTS, one focusing on PTSD and the other on Cancer Awareness.  Both presentations were panel discussions followed by a Q&A session.
Both presentations were very well received by those in attendance.  These presentations are now available online on the IAFF website and you are encouraged to view them.

To view these webcasts you can download the IAFF Frontline App and go to the ALTS 2015 tab where you will find them under the webcasts menu.  You can also access them by clicking this link:

Not only is UFFW is working hard on these issues but we are a world-wide leader where these things are concerned.

Captains, this information can be used for a drill session.
