Rest up today. Maybe you will need that energy for that big fire tonight. Take a look at this picture. This picture is a perfect example of the need for functional fitness in the fire service. We constantly are required to lift heavy objects, in this case a saw, at strange heights and angles in full turnout gear. How can anyone have "good form" while performing this job? Functional fitness will allow us to have "good form" and reduce the risk of injuries no matter what our task is.
