Dear FireRescue1 Subscriber,
If you've not already seen it, our new Fire Chief digital edition is now available. The exclusive articles in this edition focus on one of the biggest issues afflicting the fire service at all levels: cancer. We examine the issue of cancer in the fire service from multiple angles, including research, laws and the link between firefighting and cancer.

Let us know what you think after you've read the issue.
