We at Fire Engineering have been trying to make it easier for the Fire Engineering community to be able to respond to articles, post messages and share thoughts. Today it is a reality. Now firefighters who are interested in training have a networking Web site they can visit to talk training. Join the Fire Engineering Training Community and upload videos and photos from the job, discuss training and incidents in the forums, and share your views about the fire service with firefighters from around the United States and the world. We are going to ask that you use your real name and we are going to self-police the rules of dignity and respect for all who participate. No unnamed bullies or rude behavior will be permitted. This site is for the serious firefighting community to finally have a place to share and discuss all the issues we have been covering in Fire Engineering for the last 131 years. Hope you enjoy it.

I'm a FFI from Cal-fire, and a current Exercise Science/Exercise Physiology Major at college of Idaho. Does anyone know of progressive departments that have implemented PT programs or have a postion within their Dept. that combines Athletic Training with other fire duties? We have PT coordinators per each unit, but no one gets payed specifically to do this job. I would really like to eventually become a training Chief and coordinate my knowledge of Exercise Science to help my fellow FF's be healthier, and work out in a way that best prepares our bodies.

I would recommend you go to the IAFF peer fittness program and see how far they have advanced fittness in the Fire Service. We have also seen great work done by the national volunteer fire council on fitness. Fire Engineering has great contacts in both these programs so feel free to e-mail me directly and I will be more than happy to introduce you to them. my e-mail is [email protected]
