    Default Ohio Police & Fire Pension Stress Test

    I have a stress test/physical for ohio police/fire pension. Wondering what type of test it is. For my Columbus stress test it was the Bruce test full on VO2 Max test. Any idea what the pension physical is for City of Delaware?

    I'm hoping this post is a tongue in cheek.

    You realize they are referring to a financial term. Don't you?

    You realize with the internet there really isn't a reason to not check facts before jumping to conclusions.

    So, two more clarifying questions:

    1. Is the stress test and physical for the OP&F used as a tool to determine eligibility or to disqualify candidates from the pension plan (thereby disqualifying them from being hired)? I read the info on the website and it did not set forth any standard for passing or failing...it just spelled out the guidelines for medical assessments and reporting requirements.

    2. What is the overall point of the medical screening and stress test results for the OP&F pension? Excuse me if my question seems naive.

    It's been 12 years since my new hire pension physical, but I believe it's purpose was to both set a baseline for initial entry into the pension system as well as a comprehensive physical to compare your baseline to department determined minimum standards.

    Plan on a Bruce protocol stress test (with or without a mask, mine was without) and plan on going 12 minutes (completion of stage 4). If you do it with the mask, I'm not sure if the 12 minute standard is the same, they may measure METS differently. Plan on a vision check, chest X-ray, resting EKG, spirograph test for vital lung capacity, bloodwork, and a general checkup with a BWC type doc.

    Good luck and congrats for making it that far!
