in Community

After a long and courageous battle with job-related cancer, Chief Troy Jackson, of the South Metro Fire Rescue has passed away. Since his diagnosis, he has fought to educate the public about the health risks that firefighters face while serving and protecting the public. Internally, he advocated for “health and safety improvements to reduce the exposure that personnel has to cancer-causing carcinogens during their daily responsibility of protecting the community.” He leaves behind a loving family and a legacy of service to our community that we should never forget.
