A lot of you may have never know James Dillon. Just know he was a great man and once you met him, you'd never forget him.
Let's not forget our late brother "Jimmy" on this 11th anniversary of his loss.
James O. Dillon
of Jupiter passed away Tuesday, January 10, 2006. Born in Providence, RI a son of the late
Battalion Chief David R. and Helen O'Neill Dillon. Jimmy was married to Diane and had 3 boys David, James, and Matthew. He had been a Florida resident for 23 years. Captain Dillon was a Firefighter Paramedic with the City of Miramar where he had served for 16 years. He was a member of the Professional Firefighters of Miramar Local # 2820
This marks the 6th year since we lost our dear friend and brother Jimmy D'. Let's take a moment on the 10th to think about him and his family and to realize how short life can be. Our plan is to live a long life but, there is no guarantee that we will stick to that plan.
“Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today.”

Body SCAN / Cancer Support Network
For info on incidence of cancer in the fire service, please contact Keith Tyson from the Firefighter Cancer Support Network. He is a wealth of knowledge about the risks and dangers of cancer in the fire service. He is a cancer survivor himself and a retired Metro Dade Firefighter. His phone number is 786-351-3276 his email is KTyson@fcsn.net.
As I explained the bodyscan process has 2 parts, the scans and a consult with our Board Certified Family Physician. The cost for the scan portion is $650 and the consult is $150. Attached is a powerpoint presentation that explains the scans and some info on cancer and radiation. I don't have an exact figure but off the top of my head I know we have detected Lung, thyroid and even male breast cancer on the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue members that we have scanned. We have also had many incidental findings of Leukemia, Gall stones, Kidney stones, Aortic Aneurysms and Coronary Artery Plaque to name a few. Palm Beach County has scanned roughly 900 men, women and spouses in the last 7 years. Please check out the information at your leisure and myself or
Dr. McRonald would be more than happy to meet with you or anyone at the department that would like more information.
You can reach me at this email or on my cell at 561-670-5359 if you have any questions.
