Miami Township Fire and EMS, Miami Township, Ohio

What They Bought With the Grant:
Physical examinations for all full-time personnel Certified trainers to conduct fitness evaluations and establish customized physical conditioning programs for personnel

How the Grant Has Helped:
Miami Township's wellness and fitness grant couldn't have been implemented at a better time. "I am convinced the program saved the life of one FF/EMT-P due to heart attack," says Chief James H. Whitworth," and it has likely prevented death and disability in a few others." The grant paid for physical examinations and fitness evaluations that uncovered some potentially life-threatening conditions in several department members." During one department member's exam, multiple coronary artery blockages were discovered, which needed immediate medical attention. The fitness evaluations also revealed that several department personnel needed to improve their physical conditioning. After 3 months on the training program, the participants showed significant improvements in their fitness levels. "The Department is committed to continuing the program based on the benefits demonstrated to date," says Chief Whitworth.
