More and more Firemen are dying from heart attacks because they are too often physically unfit. It is past time to take action and demand that all Firefighters be held to a higher standard of fitness than currently being enforced. 

This link connects to a Firerescue 1 posting about a man who was elderly but also very unfit and it cost him his life. He was an Engineer so there was not too much strain on his body, yet his heart failed because of the excitement.

At some point the Fire Service in rural America will have to begin accepting younger members and treat them with the respect they deserve instead of the "good old boy" tried and true vetting process that many probational Firefighters are subjected to just because "it is what we have always done". This foolish pranking and embarrassing of new recruits is why many choose to leave the service who would have been perfect for this job, so it must stop.

All who are willing and can do the job should be embraced and taught with passion and diligence so they can quickly learn the skills needed and feel accepted from the start.
