The Fire Department requires firefighters to undergo mandatory annual fitness testing. They are strongly encouraged to take one hour per day for strength training and cardiovascular fitness to maintain their health and meet the requirements of their annual fitness test.
Firefighters work a 24 hour shift for five days on a rotating schedule. During their off time, some firefighters have opted to purchase their own gym memberships to have access to equipment and facilities in their assigned service area. Please call 919-560-4242 for more information.
