Keep fire fighters fit with the 2015 NFPA 1583: Standard on Health-Related Fitness Programs for Fire Department Members.

Fire fighter fitness affects every aspect of the job, from effectiveness in the field to long-term stress and injury resilience. That's why a fitness program -- with properly trained peer fitness trainers and health and fitness coordinators -- is a key component of any department's occupational safety and health program.

NFPA 1583 outlines a complete health-related fitness program designed for fire departments that is consistent with today's best practices. The 2015 edition is a vital companion to NFPA 1582: Comprehensive Occupational Medical Program for Fire Departments.

Important revisions in the 2015 NFPA 1583 keep the Standard current with all other NFPA® health and safety standards.

Annex material helps fire departments provide an adequate facility, rather than a prescriptive list of equipment. Annexes contain a suggestion that the HFC have a background in functional anatomy, exercise physiology, exercise testing and prescription, exercise supervision, and leadership. There's also a self-assessment tool for use by members to monitor their individual fitness level. (Softbound, 21 pp., 2015)
