MEDICAL

Due to the physical demands of the job, it is essential that all uniformed personnel maintain a high level of fitness-wellness. The purpose of the Wellness Fitness Initiative (WFI) is to ensure that uniformed personnel are healthy enough to work safely and effectively during their careers and maintain good health during their retirement. The intent of the program is that it is implemented as a mandatory, non-punitive program where all uniformed personnel work to improve his or her health or wellness, competing only with themselves. 

This section contains an overview of the medical components implemented by all of the participating departments.
