Firefighter Heart Health in the Age of COVID

January 18, 2022 | 1 PM EST

Firefighters are more vulnerable to not only heart disease, but also to being a vulnerable firefighter that suffers a sudden heart attack while on active duty. Routine testing can miss up to 50% of at-risk firefighters. Many of these risks are also the same risks that place individuals at a higher risk of hospitalization and death from COVID-19. A firefighter-specific, research-based, heart health program is essential to reducing the numbers of Firefighters dying from heart attacks. This webinar will explore the scientific evidence, the testing and commonalities that exist between COVID-19 disease, deaths and heart disease.
