NVFC Obesity Study Update

Wednesday, 04 January 2012

The National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC), thanks to support from the U.S. Fire Administration, has partnered with the HOPE Health Research Institute to conduct a study on obesity in the fire service. The study looks at the impact of obesity, the scope of obesity in the fire service, why obesity has become an epidemic, innovative trends in nutrition and fitness that firefighters can utilize, and recommendations for the fire service for combating obesity and increasing fitness.

The full report will be released in the coming weeks. Visit http://healthy-firefighter.org/start-a-program to access the webinar Obesity in the Fire Service, which provides a preview of the report’s findings and recommendations.
