Decon Day 2020

It all started on a warm August afternoon with a random donation of a case of Responder Wipes to Georgetown City Fire Department in Georgetown, SC. The donation brought comfort and happiness to Carney's family, doing something spontaneous and good to fellow brothers and sisters.


From there, Decontamination Day was born.  To honor BC Josh Carney, on the anniversary of his passing on October 19, 2018, Carney Strong volunteers across the country made small donations of decontamination wipes to suburban and rural departments. Volunteers stopped by 20 fire departments in 11 states with donations of over 2,000 wipes. It was a perfect way to bring sunshine to what could have been a cloudy day.

Our Mission
The Carney Strong Initiative assists fire departments throughout the country with occupational cancer prevention through education and the donation of decontamination supplies. Our focus is on smaller fire departments in suburban and rural locales comprised of volunteer, combination, and career staffing. Our purpose is to help combat occupational cancer to ensure that firefighters go home to their family, so they don't suffer at the hands of this dreadful disease.
