NVFC to Offer Health Screenings in Virginia, August 11-12

Tuesday, 02 August 2011

Residents of Virginia who missed out on free health screenings from the National Volunteer Fire Council’s (NVFC) Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program this spring have a second chance. The NVFC will be offering glucose and cholesterol screenings at the Virginia State Firefighters Association Conference in Hampton, VA, August 11-12.

In addition to the complimentary screenings, attendees can visit the NVFC booth for information and resources on health and safety, recruitment and retention, and other topics important to the fire and emergency services. Departments and individuals can learn how to increase their department’s capacity through Fire Corps, get information on National Firefighter Health Week, pick up guides on securing sponsorships and vehicle safety, and learn more about how to establish or further develop a youth program with help from the National Junior Firefighter Program.
