  • Your departments overall health/fitness

    Over the last 3 decades, heart attack has been the number one killer of firefighters. The numbers more than enough prove the need to put more focus in health/fitness matters. My question to all of you is
    "What is your volunteer department doing to improve or promote better health/fitness in your department. Does your department discuss these matters at all? Do you have work out equipment in the station? and does your department have a physical abilities type test for new applicants to get on your department? and last but unfortunately, does your department just not care about health/fitness matters.

    Please voice your opinion and feeling in regards to health/fitness in todays fire service, and ideas to improve the statistic of heart attack as the top killer of FF's.

    Thank you

    Our station is very cramped so there is no room for any exercise equipment so if any health/fitness issues are addressed they have to be done by the FF's. Fortunately, about half our department is under 30 and many have active, construction type jobs. Unfortunately, our dept. does lack in that we do not have a fitness program.
