HFBA Supports Movember
The HFBA is proud to support The Movember Foundation in its mission to change the face of men’s health. Our fathers, partners, brothers and friends are facing a health crisis, yet it’s rarely talked about. Men are dying too young. We can’t afford to stay silent.
Grow a mo to save a bro!
Throughout Movember we remember our brother, partner, and friend Firefighter Paramedic Robbie Pettingill. Robbie was an exceptional firefighter paramedic that we could always count on to have our backs. We all knew him as the “funniest person I have ever known”. It didn’t matter if you worked with him on your first day out of rookie school or 10 years in you were treated the same, and by the end of the shift you would already be going to grab coffee as best friends. All people were your people which is why you were loved by so many. It breaks our hearts knowing how bad you were struggling on the inside while still having that infectiously great attitude on the outside.
Robbie was a great friend and partner to so many affiliated with the HFBA which is why we take great pride and responsibility to honor him and continue his mission of improving firefighter mental health and wellness.
BY 2030, WE AIM TO REDUCE THE NUMBER OF MEN DYING PREMATURELY BY 25%.
Movember is taking them all on
Mental health and suicide prevention, prostate cancer and testicular cancer – we’re taking them all on.
