The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is affecting every aspect of our lives.
Exercise, good nutrition and stress management are all critical for fire fighters and emergency medical personnel to stay well and continue responding in their communities.
Given the added stress during this time, we continue to provide resources to support the health and resilience of our members.
Because health and resilience are at the forefront with increased demands both on duty and at home, we have expanded the campaign to include movement, nutrition, wellness, resilience, sleep and many other topics, collaborating with other health and wellness subject matter experts, including IAFF Peer Fitness and Fire Ground Survival instructors, IAFF Health and Safety staff and a medical professional.
What You Can Expect:
• Daily posts on a wide range of topics to support your health and resilience.
• Weekly interviews with experts in fire fighter wellness and resilience.
• Real-life strategies and tips to support you right now.
