I have been fortunate enough to have worked for a progressive fire chief, who knows the importance of physical fitness. We do not have an SOG but we are required to perform PT once per shift for at least an hour. It is generally left up to the company officer what is done whether it be cardiovascular or strength conditioning. Some officers have become creative with the way they do PT by incorporating a competitive game, however, we have found this to be dangerous as firefighters can be physical while playing chess and acidents do occur. We have had anything from knee blow outs to teeth being shoved up into the jaw and broke off, both of which required surgery. The worker's comp insurance took a hit so the chief put a stop to the games and restricted it to calesthenics, running, and weight training. He further went and purchased a weight trainers services to teach all members how to properly condition themself. I am very thankful to say the least.
