DAY ELEVEN: Media and more station visits

Alex Forrest has taken every opportunity to educate firefighters and the media across the country and today, his last day in NZ, was no exception.

Early morning Alex was at Te Atatu Station with firefighters from around the District piling in to hear the message. Newshub covered that meeting and will cover the issue of firefighters occupational cancer in the news this evening.

Next was Mt Wellington where firefighters, trainers and aviation firefighters gathered to meet Alex.

In between radio interviews, Alex visited Papatoetoe Fire Station to another full house of firefighters coming in from neighbouring stations.

Auckland firefighter Jeff Shrimpton has been driving us around and his personal experience with cancer is moving testament to the need for presumptive legislation and for occupational hygiene best practice.
