Where firefighters come to talk training

Get Paid to Get Fire Rescue Fit in 2017!

Over $2,500 in cash and prizes will be given away to Firefighters, EMTs and Medics! 

YOU can Win and more importantly Motivate Others!  

Don't wait, get your program and get started today!

The purpose of the contest is to motivate Firefighters, EMTs and Medics to change the unhealthy culture of the fire service.   Statistics show that the obesity rate in firefighters is higher than the general population.  Sadly, firefighters are more likely to die from a heart attack or stroke than in a fire related incident.

WE MUST CREATE a HEALTHY CULTURE IN THE FIRE SERVICE as lives, communities and our families are counting us!

Take the "fit for duty" challenge, get others in your department involved and help change the fire service industry!

See the complete entry instructions below.
