The best way to diminish the effects of any diseases, illnesses or injuries is to detect them as early as possible.
This is especially true for firefighters, who in many cases, are at greater risk for certain diseases, illnesses and injuries than the general population. Annual physicals, based upon testing criteria for the increased health risks faced by firefighters, have proven to lead to early detection and prevention of long-term illnesses.
In 2017, the FRCE entered into a memorandum of understanding with the International Association of Fire Chiefs to develop resources for firefighters and clinicians on physicals and how to best implement a physical program.
The FRCE thanks you in advance for partnering with us to increase the number of firefighters who get their NFPA 1582
physicals. While annual physicals have always been a priority, many organizations struggle with where to start or how to grow their health and wellness programs. We are here to help with free, downloadable tools that you can customize.
