Why We Climb – Show Your Support

The mission of the American Lung Association hits close to home with firefighters because of our increased susceptibility to lung disease, including lung cancer due to exposure of gases, chemicals and smoke in the line of duty.  Respiratory diseases remain a significant health issue for firefighters and emergency responders.  And we are at a higher risk of developing chronic issues, including lingering cough, hoarseness, asthma and allergies and in more extreme cases, lung or bronchial cancer diagnosis.

 

Many of you have participated in the Climb as part of the Cadet Classes 195, 197 and 198 teams. Now as a member of a Firehouse, you understand even more the daily risks firefighters face while putting your lives on the line and being exposed to the possibility of lung disease.

 

In 2017, Battalion Chief John Narkin, B.01/C was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer, and in 2018 and 2019, our brothers and sisters came together in solidarity for him.  The Climb in 2020 had to go virtual due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Countless number of firefighters have seen first-hand the devasting affects of this virus including losing friends and loved ones. 

 

This year, it is our hope that every firehouse in Philadelphia and surrounding counties show their support for Chief Narkin and their fellow firefighters with lung disease and are represented at the 2021 Fight For Air Climb to raise awareness to the occupational respiratory hazards of being a firefighter that can cause damaging short and long-term effects on the respiratory system.

 

Join us in full firefighter gear at the Fight For Air Climb -Philadelphia. Climb for the shared challenge and the friendly competition. Climb for a world free of lung disease!
