In 1999, members of the Carrollton Fire Department (CFD) and Carrollton Local 2182 developed a wellness program which eventually led to the implementation of the IAFF\IAFC Joint Labor Management Wellness-Fitness Initiative (WFI). It is the goal of the CFD to help all members improve and maintain their physical health, mental health and ability to perform their assigned duties. The wellness-fitness program is designed to promote safe and clear objectives and to provide a supportive and productive atmosphere in
which to do so.
