Fitness & Wellness Program Information

It is our belief that in order to fulfill our mission and core values, our firefighters and EMT's must be in top shape, physically and emotionally. Our Wellness & Fitness Program has been established so that our members can reach and maintain a level of fitness that allows them to safely perform their assigned functions and to reduce the probability and severity of occupational injuries and illnesses.

Our program consists of activities within five program areas.

Read the latest fitness info: Workout Mistakes.

The program areas are:

  • Physical fitness.  This includes initial and annual fitness assessments, as well as individualized fitness programming.

  • Medical fitness and nutrition.  All members undergo an initial physician administered physical as well as regular medical assessments.

  • Emotional health.  Through the provision of a contracted employee assistance program, our in-house chaplain program, and the appropriate use of critical incident stress management, we seek to address and reduce emotional and behavioral health issues.

  • Family services.  The involvement of family members in our organization has important benefits.  Additionally, employee assistance services are available free of charge to family members.

  • Injury prevention and rehabilitation.  The rehabilitation of our members following injury must be a priority. Rehabilitation should include multi-site physical therapy and rehabilitation services through a provider that has extensive background with fire departments.

 All members are encouraged to work out regularly.  The services of certified personal trainers are available to all members at no charge.  Repeatedly, research has shown the need for high levels of aerobic fitness, muscular endurance, and muscular strength to perform safely and effectively in the fire service.  Physical fitness is critical to maintaining the wellness of our members.

 The Fitness Assessment (conducted around May-June) consists of the following:

  • Timed treadmill test (assesses aerobic capacity and endurance)
    - Firefighter: Bruce Protocol treadmill test
    - EMT only: Balke Protocol treadmill test
  • YMCA Bench Press test (assesses muscular strength)
  • Half Sit Up test (assesses muscular endurance)
  • Hip to Waist Ratio (body composition)
  • Sit & Reach test (assesses flexibility)

The Kombat Challenge consists of the following, performed in sequence:

  • Charged hose-line drag (75')
  • Stair climb with 2˝" hi-rise pack
  • Tool carry (150')
  • Dummy drag (185lb dummy, 150')

All of the above are done in full gear with SCBA. Participants must complete the Kombat Challenge within the time allotted.

MTFR Strategic Plan

"I am proud to present to everyone the MTFR Strategic Plan Year 1 Scorecard.  This document, here in PDF format, charts the current status of our plan’s implementation.  If you’re not familiar with the MTFR Strategic Plan, it can be viewed and/or downloaded below.  We are now embarking on the second year of the ten year plan, the first to be fully funded (due to last spring’s supplemental levy); you’ll be seeing improvements and changes throughout the year.  Additionally, I’ll be seeking member involvement on several of the initiatives outlined within the plan." - Colin Altman, Chief  - Feb 5, 2007
