2017 IAFF Redmond Health and Safety Symposium, Vancouver British Columbia, August 10, 2017
Every firefighter, regardless of age, experience, fitness or job status, needs the capacity to meet the demands of their life. The Demands-Capacity framework can help to establish exercise recommendations, minimize injury, and maximize quality of life. This workshop highlighted the latest developments of the IAFF’s PFT program and several “small steps” that can be taken to build and effective PFT program that can be sustained in the long-term. Common questions regarding movement screening, CrossFit and stretching are also discussed following the presentation.
