Serious about reducing line of duty deaths? Serious about improving awareness of firefighter health? Let’s see just how serious.
On the latest Firefighter Netcast episode, Chris Naum’s Taking It To The Streets Looking Forward Through The Rear view Mirror, I was asked my thoughts on the one thing I believed the fire service should focus its attention on in 2011. So, I said…
“Every publisher, expo group out there should give one full day of their expo schedule to providing free health and fitness screening to all attendees. You guys subscribe to the magazines, pay to go to the shows, buy from their advertisers – it’s the least they could do if they are serious about your health and reducing LODDs.”
One full day. No other training, classroom sessions, or lectures. Just physicals, medical screenings, stress tests.
