January is Firefighter Cancer Awareness month. Cancer has been the #1 killer of firefighters over the past few years.

Local 3756 is dedicated in helping our members with early detection of cancer and cardiovascular disease. Early detection has had a great impact to help prevent and reverse potential future catastrophic events.

The past two years IAFF Locals in our region have seen incredible results from providing Union members cancer and cardiovascular screening programs. Individuals who never knew that they were living with a terminal condition were identified and saved. One company that is conducting these important services for IAFF Locals is National Diagnostic Services of NY (NDS). We are proud to announce that Local 3756 is working with National Diagnostic Service to provide ultrasound cancer screenings to our IAFF members and to other LCFR system members.

The ultrasound screening includes an Echocardiogram, Carotid, Abdominal Aorta, Thyroid, Liver, Spleen, Kidney, Bladder, Testicular for males, and Exterior Pelvic scan for females.

Recent data provided to Local 3756 where NDS conducted this type of screening in Prince William County, Prince Georges County, City of Baltimore, Anna Arundel county and Philadelphia, identified a high number of unknown health conditions. With that important information it provided those members an opportunity to seek medical care and intervention.

NDS will be screening several hundred our members for the next two weeks.

Today marks 14 years since we lost Brother Alex Keepers. Brother Keepers was on his way into work when he was involved in a fatal auto accident on the Point of Rocks bridge. The years may have passed, but his memory is still with us every day. He is truly missed but not forgotten. It is our honor to carry on his legacy of dedication, pride, and commitment to the fire service.

Do you know the power of a closed door?

Closing the door not only blocks the smoke but it also keeps out the heat. A closed door can mean reducing 1,000 degrees down to 100 degrees. During a fire this is a life or death difference.

If you suspect you might be infected with COVID-19, please do not visit the emergency room for a COVID-19 test. Instead seek out a community testing site or a home test kit. Inova Emergency Departments are prioritizing patients with medical conditions requiring emergency care and those with critical illness. We strongly discourage patients who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms from coming to the emergency room so we may preserve resources for those in our community with emergent medical needs.

We are working to set up a community testing site – follow us on social media for details.

It is with profound sadness that we inform you that our Brother, colleague, and friend Battalion Chief Chris Morlan has passed away this morning from complications of COVID-19.

Our Brother fought hard and we grieve as a family. We had prayed this day would never come. We will continue to support each other and stand together to support the Morlan family

We are keenly aware of the dangers of our profession. Each day we hope that God would continue to look over and protect us. Each day we put on our uniform, with the hope that each of our brothers and sisters would safely return home. Today tragedy has befallen our family. A day we hoped would never come. We must stand together and support each other to support the Morlan family and those that are closest to them.

We will post additional information as it becomes available. Please keep Brother Morlan’s family in your thoughts and prayers. Take a moment to reflect, hold your loved one's close, and please stay safe and protect one another.

The family is requesting privacy and no contact at this time.

Some good news. On December 2, the House Subcommittee on Workforce Protections will hold a hearing on workers' compensation. They will also consider HR. 2499, the Federal Fire Fighters Fairness Act, (introduced by Rep. Carbajal) which currently has 95 co-sponsors. This legislation, as you know, would provide a presumption that certain firefighter illnesses are job-related.

Please make sure you engage your members and ask them to contact their House Representatives and ask them to co-sponsor HR 2499 if they are not currently a co-sponsor. The more support we can show the Committee on this important legislation, the better chance we have of the Bill being marked up sometime next year.
