Members of the Work Group include representatives from government agencies, fire departments, nonprofit healthcare organizations, and corporations. The group provides insight and guidance for the Program.

Attendees were given an update on the Program’s activities since the last meeting in the fall of 2010, including results from the NVFC’s traveling health fair. The group then brainstormed ways to work together on new initiatives and discussed emerging health issues in the fire service.
