WASHINGTON, DC – The NVFC Heart-Healthy Firefighter program has released another tool to help America's fire and emergency services live a healthier lifestyle. The new publication, entitled "Face the Facts: NVFC Heart-Healthy Resource Guide," provides life-saving information on coronary heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, fitness, nutrition, cholesterol, smoking cessation and more.
The guide can be downloaded at: http://www.healthy-firefighter.org/pdf/2005-resource-guide.pdf.
"The online guide is an awareness tool the fire service can use to reduce the number of fatalities from heart attacks and other health-related issues," said NVFC Chairman Philip C. Stittleburg. "The NVFC, our corporate partners, and the U.S. Fire Administration have made a commitment to reduce firefighter deaths, now each firefighter must make their own personal commitment to better themselves."
