February is American Heart Month

Heart attack is the leading cause of line-of-duty firefighter deaths each year. Heart disease can often be prevented by lowering risk factors, maintaining a healthy weight, eating a balanced diet, and participating in functional fitness to prepare yourself for the duties of emergency response. Find resources to maintain a heart-healthy lifestyle as well as start or expand a department-wide health and wellness program from the NVFC’s Heart-Healthy Firefighter Program.
