UPDATED - Recommended medical tests for firefighters
Updated On: Sep 25, 2016
Medical Evaluation is a key component of the Wellness Fitness Initiative. Below are three letters: one from the BCPFFA which explains what the presumptive cancers are for firefighters in British Columbia, and another from Dr. Hartley Stern which indicates the need for colonoscopies for firefighters beginning at age 40. Please discuss these with your doctor as well the checklist to determine which tests would be appropriate for your age.
