Firefighters, pilots and fire supervisors.


I am happy to introduce a new preventative health and wellness screening program to you in the attached memo.  I think this will be a real benefit to all our fire personnel in the future in helping us stay as healthy as possible.   Please don’t hesitate to ask your supervisor or contact Larry Grubbs with any questions you may have.  We plan to come out with additional information next week on this program.  Also I want to say thanks for a great job so far on this year’s fire activities, you continue to prove to all of Florida that they have the best wildland fire agency in the country.  Great job and be safe.
