Columbus Firefighters undergoing special physical, emotional wellness workshops


COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) – Firefighters with the Columbus Division of Fire are undergoing training this week to make sure they’re taking care of themselves, both physically and mentally.

The three day workshops hope to give the firefighters new ways to handle the stresses of the jobs or of just every day life.

“So we focus on strength conditioning, mental resiliency, nutrition, sleep and PT/PTSD focus,” said Ian Crumley with O2X, the training and education company behind the workshops. “So really what we do is we design custom programs to support first responders both law enforcement, fire and then military for the specific purpose of supporting these individuals through the life of their careers.”
