Fire fighters respond to emergency incidents that require extreme physical output and often result in physiological and psychological outcomes. Such situations, over time, can and do effect the overall wellness of the fire fighting and emergency response system. Tomorrow’s fire service requires that we face our destiny of keeping our fire fighters fit today.
The ultimate goal of the Fire Service Joint Labor Management Wellness/Fitness Initiative is to improve the quality of life for all fire fighters. The project seeks to prove the value of investing wellness resources over time to maintain a fit, healthy, and capable fire fighter throughout his/her career and beyond.
