Mental/Physical Wellness for First Responders
Two Day Webinar: 10/19/20 (Mon.) and 10/20/20 (Tue.) • 8:00 AM – 1:00PM EST
Every day, first responders are vigilant and almost mechanical in their actions when responding and attending to emergency situations. Demonstrating true resiliency, first responders continually move forward, despite how they are taxed physically and mentally. How they process these events, however, is commonly overlooked. This webinar will present insights into various mental and physical health concerns that impact first responder well-being, examine the impact of the pandemic and offer some direction and resources for addressing needs.

Fitness Fights Fires: Examining the Relationship Between Physical Fitness and Firefighting Ability
10/21/20 (Wed.) • 3:00 PM – 5:00PM EST
The physical demands of firefighting are evident, and a high level of physical fitness is required to perform the job safely. Unfortunately, the majority of firefighters remain unfit for duty. In this session we will investigate the relationship between physical fitness (i.e. cardiovascular and muscular endurance) and performance on the fire ground as well as the role of regular exercise in preventing/attenuating multiple health risks.
