Share Your National Firefighter Health Week Activity Ideas

Tuesday, 15 April 2008

Mark your calendars for the second annual National Firefighter Health Week, taking place from August 18-22. Last year’s event was a great success, and this year will be even better.

First responders face increased risk factors every day that may affect their physical and mental well-being. National Firefighter Health Week is a time to focus on the importance of nutrition, exercise, and making healthy lifestyle choices. The focus topics of this year's National Firefighter Health Week include behavioral health, nutrition, heart-health, pulmonary health, and diabetes.

In preparation for this important week, the NVFC wants to hear from you! Tell us what your department did last year to observe National Firefighter Health Week and share your activity ideas for this year. Did you organize a department health screening, or participate in a team athletic event? Maybe you took part in a heart-healthy cooking demonstration or passed out health information packets to your department members. Or perhaps you signed a pledge to embark on the journey to heart-health. Whatever the activity, share it with the NVFC. Email your Health Week activities from last year or your planned events for this year to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . These activities may be highlighted as examples to other departments planning their 2008 activities.

Stay tuned to the Heart-Healthy Firefighter web site and the Heart-Healthy Firefighter E-news for more information regarding the 2008 National Firefighter Health Week.
