We are 20 minutes in to our circuit training, and our cylinders are exhausted. We now are going to switchover to new cylinders to complete our workout. Without breathing air from the atmosphere, we will be able to exchange our spent cylinders with full cylinders while utlilzing our EBSS (Buddy Breathing) equipment. This exercise is instrumental in keeping you familiar with your equipment in the event of YOUR true emergency."FireFighter-Fit, saving lives in more ways than one"

Anne Arundel County, MD Local 1563 Firefighters take time to stay Firefighter-Fit while on duty! Great Work BROTHERS!!! FIREFIGHTERS – Remember “Firefighter-Fit” is a concept, a way of living and benefits every aspect of life! We owe it to our brother and sister firefighters, family and friends to live an all around healthy life style. Our job whether it be volunteer or career takes a serious toll on our bodies! We have the hardest civilian based job and we go from zero to red lined on a regular basis. This is why ...our cardiac line of duty death statistics are so high, wait no….they are through the roof! We must give ourselves the best chance possible and eat healthier, exercise regularly and get a yearly check up done!
