Surviving More Than Flames with Todd LeDuc
Firefighting has always been about survival. But now, we are recognizing that fire isn’t the only danger. Whether it’s occupational cancer, cardiovascular events, or behavioral health injuries, the threats are constant. A new book, Surviving the Fire Service, contains information about cancer, cardiovascular risk, medical exams and screening, nutrition, managing heat stress, and a whole lot more. It explains how to manage and reduce risks in the fire service. Here to tell us more is Todd LeDuc, the editor of Surviving the Fire Service. Todd LeDuc retired as assistant fire chief for Broward County Florida Fire/Rescue after a 30-year career. Todd is the Chief Strategy Officer at Life Scan Wellness Centers.
