Day in and day out, Local 36 members are putting themselves in harms way to protect life and property. Ultimately, we are protecting the quality of life and the economic viability of our city. The public counts on us and our members will always rise to the occasion to ensure we are there when they need us most.
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!
