Inspire Others with Your 2009 National Firefighter Health Week Success Story

Tuesday, 02 March 2010

Did your fire department focus on health and wellness during last year’s National Firefighter Health Week? The National Volunteer Fire Council’s Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program would like to share your story with first responders nationwide to serve as inspiration and motivation for the 2010 National Firefighter Health Week, August 16-20.

Many departments and emergency organizations conducted special activities and events corresponding with the week’s daily topics, which highlighted issues such as mental/behavioral health, heart-health, and fitness and nutrition. The Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program wants to hear about your past National Firefighter Health Week experiences and any plans you have for this year’s event. Your story may be featured in a special National Firefighter Health Week issue of The Pulse printed newsletter, in an issue of the Heart-Healthy Firefighter E-news, or on the Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program web site.
