In addition to workouts, fire fighters can also take advantage of specialized educational programs on topics such as:
- Stress management
- Body mechanics
- Smoking cessation
The fire fighters aren’t the only ones learning. In order to create the optimum in health benefits and resources for the JPFD, The Wellness Center staff is studying fire fighting to learn more about the physical and emotional demands of the job. This helps them customize individual exercise prescriptions to address not only the fire fighter’s goals, but the specific demands of his or her job as well.
The aim of the program is to improve quality of life for the fire fighters, but the East Bank community will also benefit from the program.
