Mandatory Physical Fitness Standards
I am looking for any departments that currently have a yearly mandatory physical fitness standard and test such as that used by the United States Armed Services. My department currently has a yearly physical assessment test and a physical every 2 years, but no mandatory standard. We are also required to excercise 1 hour per shift, but that is not always followed. I am looking to improve morale and firefighter safety by incorporating fitness and a healthy lifestyle into the firehouse. Anyone with information about your own department, or one that you know of using mandatory standards please let me know. Thanks.
