Volunteer Firefighters in Charles County are tough, but so are the challenges we face. The health and safety choices we make affect not only ourselves, but our entire crew and all those who depend on us.

**Heart attacks cause over 50 percent of on-duty firefighter deaths each year.
**Over 390 firefighter and EMT suicides have been reported since 2014.
**Cancer is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous threats to firefighters.
**The top cause of firefighter injuries is overexertion/stress/medical, followed by vehicle crashes.
