Why do I see firefighters running at the track or exercising in some other way while on-duty?

Category: Fire Department
It is critical that a firefighter’s mind, body, and spirit are able to operate at peak performance in a moment’s notice. The nature of the occupation demands a great deal of physical strength and stamina. As such, firefighters are encouraged to spend approximately one hour each day (on and off duty) exercising.  While exercising, the firefighter is still prepared to respond at a moment’s notice to any emergency that may arise.
