NVFC Booth To Feature Health Screenings, Firehouse Chef at FDIC

Tuesday, 04 March 2008

The NVFC is bringing its interactive booth to FDIC, and this year it will be better than ever. The booth (#91) will continue to feature important components of the Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program, including health screenings and cooking demonstrations, as well as draw in other key NVFC programs.

Stop by Booth #91 to find out your blood pressure, cholesterol, and body composition numbers. These free screenings are conducted by L&T Health and Fitness, an award-winning fitness management and health promotion company.

Chef Joseph Bonanno Jr. is joining the booth to provide cooking demonstrations and samples of tasty, heart-healthy meals. Well-known as the Firehouse Chef, Bonanno is the author of The Healthy Firehouse Cookbook and The Firehouse Grilling Cookbook. He is a 21-year veteran of the New York City Fire Department and is a certified fitness trainer and nutritionist. Chef Bonanno will prepare several dishes, including El Diablo Sausage and Lentil Stew, Pasta Il Pompiere, and Shrimp and Sausage Jambalaya. Learn more about Chef Bonanno at www.chefbonanno.com.

In addition to the Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program, stop by the NVFC booth to learn how to increase your department’s capacity through Fire Corps, find valuable resources for your department, and learn more about the National Junior Firefighter Program.
