Health and Wellness Guide   [open pdf - 2MB]

The prevalence of cardiovascular illness and deaths and work-inhibiting strains and sprains among firefighters illustrates the need for a comprehensive health and wellness program in every department. The fire service realizes that health and wellness programs benefit individual firefighters and the fire and emergency services as a whole; such programs can yield safer and more effective action by first responders to emergencies. This guide provides the rationale and suggestions for implementing a health and wellness program successfully in the volunteer fire and emergency services.
