Fire Service Joint Labor-Management Wellness-Fitness Initiative

A wellness/fitness program that is developed and implemented in accordance with the WFI will help secure the highest possible level of health to fire response personnel. While individual elements of those programs may vary somewhat from department to department, the program development process will be similar. This document provides a suggested step-by step approach that will result in a written plan that will describe the various elements of a comprehensive wellness/fitness program. 

The Fire Service Joint Labor Management Wellness-Fitness Initiative has five main components. Each component is significant to the implementation of a wellness-fitness program and lends itself to achieving a holistic approach, the five components are medical; fitness; medical/fitness/injury rehabilitation; behavioral health; data collection and reporting.
