Line of duty deaths caused by cardiac issues are almost epidemic and taking valued firefighters from us. I am proposing a National commitment to Weight Loss Competitions. I have issued a Challenge here. I propose 100 % participation in Weight Loss Competitions of any kind between shifts, departments and unions and that we start immediately. Lets see how much weight we can loose before the New Year 2014? We can all get involved in this. The result will be saving the lives of our brothers and sisters. Chaplain Dick Phelps
