FirstNet®, Built with AT&T Brings Health & Wellness Training To Duxbury (MA) First Responders

O2X Human Performance to provide 2-day workshop for public safety officials

Duxbury, MAFirstNet®, Built with AT&T and O2X Human Performance are collaborating to support the health and wellness of first responders nationwide. In a series of multiple workshops to take place across America, the Duxbury (MA) Fire Department will host the next training evolution on August 15th and 16th. This 2-day training workshop brings a customized training curriculum to first responders and is aimed at optimizing performance and increasing career longevity.

Firefighters and other first responders face extraordinary challenges daily, leading to compounding stress over a 20+ year career. The curriculum provided at the workshop will aim to mitigate the impact of both mental and physical strain that can lead to behavioral health issues, fatigue, and burnout. O2X has successfully collaborated with hundreds of public safety agencies nationwide to provide state-of-the-art training and education aimed specifically at helping first responders finish their careers as strong as they started.

“We are sincerely grateful to have the opportunity to collaborate with O2X Human Performance and FirstNet, Built with AT&T,” said Chief Reardon of Duxbury Fire Department. “This workshop has the potential to be truly life-changing for our department members, further equipping them with the tools and knowledge necessary to excel both on and off the job.” Chief Reardon concludes, “I have confidence that this workshop will not only enhance our individual and collective performance but also serve as a catalyst for positive change within our department. Together with O2X, we are committed to fostering a culture of resilience and continuous growth.”

Over the course of two days, participants will learn how small, incremental changes can lead to sustainable performance and lifestyle improvements. The topics covered include strategies to mitigate the risk of injury, tools to enhance performance under pressure and manage high stress jobs, and education on proper nutrition, sleep hygiene, and foundations of movement – all designed specifically to meet unique training needs of first responders.

“Our first responders put their lives on the line every day to protect our community and we take their health and wellness seriously,” said Dr. Anna Fitch Courie, DPN, RN, PHNA-BC, Director, Responder Wellness, FirstNet Program at AT&T. “This program has proven successful and we’re hoping our collaboration will allow more first responders to feel equipped both mentally and physically to handle their jobs.”

This training program reinforces the strategic priorities established by the FirstNet Health and Wellness Coalition (FNHWC) to support first responders and their families. FNHWC’s mission is to integrate responder, community, industry, and academic capabilities to support the health, wellness, and readiness of American first responders.

“O2X is thrilled to collaborate with FirstNet, Built with AT&T to provide our training and education to first responders in Duxbury, a community situated right down the street from our Scituate (MA) headquarters.” said Adam La Reau, Co-founder at O2X Human Performance. “We’re excited to engage with the local first responders who tirelessly protect the very community we call home. Through this program, we aim to elevate their performance and enable them to attain peak potential, creating a safer and stronger community where O2X is deeply rooted.”

The workshop will be held at 71 Alden St, Duxbury, MA 02332 from 8am to 4pm daily.
