ISBN: 9781428361485

Promotes good health and safe practices in the fire department. Beneficial to the individual firefighter, as well as the entire department, this book provides a total health evaluation and fitness program designed specifically for firefighters. Focuses on the special needs of the firefighter and is built around the joint labor management Wellness-Fitness Initiative (WFI) and compatible with both NFPA 1583, and the 16 Firefighter Life Safety Initiatives. Begins by covering the stress levels and physical risks inherent to the job itself, then identifies the principles of successful fitness program design to help firefighters evaluate their own health and fitness levels and program goals. Proper nutrition, the importance of mental training, and a look at common firefighter injuries illustrate the critical role that physical fitness plays in the success and well-being of firefighters.
