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.
Stay safe, stay fit.
