I am working on starting a Firefighter Health 5K run/walk with the American Heart Assn and other organizations. Should be in June. Hopefully in the Meadowlands. Still working on all the details. Let me know if you are interested.

I am working on a facebook page "cardiac firefighters". I want to share information, since I had a triple bypass and heart attack. I am 47 and not done yet.

Wow. I added this group and it appears it has been abandon. I think we all need to start some blogs on here to show the importance of firefighter fitness and nutrition. It is still the leading cause of all firefighter deaths. So are you up for the challenge???

Hey all, I wanted to invite you to check out a brand new site called Its a site where FFs can buy, sell and trade with other FFs, for free. It would be a great place to sell fitness equipment or training cds you no longer use. Check it out and see if it could be useful to you. Thanks, stay safe.
