Firefighters Physicals

Performing firefighting tasks is an extremely physical endeavor conducted under extreme heat or cold conditions while wearing heavy protective gear. Due to these factors, heart attacks and aggravation of pre-existing conditions are common causes of severe injury and death to firefighters.  IMWCA requires all active firefighters to pass a physical at least once every five years to determine the ability of the firefighter to perform the task that may be assigned to them on an incident scene.
