Alex Working With European Leaders to Expand Presumptive Cancer

September 8, 2016

It was an incredible honour to present on occupational cancer/presumptive Legislation & prevention in the fire service to the fire chief leadership of Europe and Asia.

30 countries were represented at this summit by over 100 delegates.

These countries are looking at Manitoba and Canada as the model of support of the tragic connection between occupational cancer and the profession of Firefighting.

With the use of a half dozen translators Alex was able to educate European leaders on the importance of supporting firefighters diagnosed with Occupational cancers.
