PEER FITNESS PROGRAM TO KEEP FIREFIGHTERS FIT

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue Chief of Department Joseph R. Lello signs a letter of interest for the newly created Peer Fitness Trainer position for the department. Looking on is Broward County Professional Firefighters & Paramedics Local 4321 President Walter J. Dix, who also signed the document. An active firefighter from within the department will be chosen for this assignment, which will include providing guidance, supervision and training to uniformed personnel. The Peer Fitness Trainer will address specific needs of firefighters through individual fitness assessment, individual program design, implementation and administration. Broward Sheriff Al Lamberti, the Fire Department and Local 4321 are completely committed to making the firefighter’s job safer through programs like the International Assoc. of Firefighters (IAFF) and International Assoc. of Fire Chiefs (IAFC) Wellness/Fitness Initiative.
