I want to be screened for Cancer

The Phoenix Fire Department and United Phoenix Firefighters are acutely aware of the impact cancer has on our firefighters and the profession at large. In response, the Fire Chief and the Union President have empowered the Cancer RBO Committee to provide our members with critical resources. These include cancer prevention tools, early screening options, and access to the best available treatment options should a member be diagnosed. The committee is co-chaired by Deputy Chief Tim Jones and Local 493 Executive VP Ben Lindquist.

Our cancer resources are organized into three sections. You are currently on the Cancer Screening Page. Other resources can be found on the Route 493 homepage by clicking here.

Active Phoenix Firefighters are eligible for full cancer screening through Vincere Cancer Center. This screening is not currently available to firefighters outside of Phoenix Fire Department or retirees. To make an appointment for a screening call 480-306-5390 and remember this is for active PFD firefighters only right now, the cost of screening will not be covered if you are not a active PFD firefighter.

Active & Retired Phoenix Firefighters are eligible for cancer screenings through occasional grants and through your health insurance. Although screenings at Vincere are not covered for retirees, the PFD and Local 493 will continue to find options for screening for retirees.
