FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Prince George’s County Fire Department to Prioritize Health & Wellness
O2X Human Performance to provide wellness education for local fire fighters
Prince George’s County, MD – From July 27–30, 40 recruits of the Prince George’s County Fire Department will participate in a four-day health, wellness and safety training workshop, which is part of a year-long education program.
The workshop will be run by O2X Human Performance, a training and education company founded by former Navy SEALs. As tactical athletes, firefighters risk their lives daily to keep their communities safe. They endure physical, and more importantly, mental stress throughout their careers and as a result, it’s become critical that they train their bodies properly to stay healthy, but also maintain their mental health.
During the first session, new recruits will hear from members of O2X’s team that includes U.S. Special Operations veterans, strength and conditioning specialists, yoga teachers, mental performance experts, PhDs in nutrition and psychology, as well as sleep scientists. They will also be taking baseline performance assessments that will be used to track progress over the year.
The program components include:
- An in-person consultation with an O2X specialist
- Physical fitness challenges
- A body-composition analysis screening
- Tobacco screening and cessation resources
- The online O2X Human Performance Assessment
“Our fire personnel put their lives on the line every day to protect our community and we take their health and wellness seriously,” said Lt. Danielle Lewis, PG County Fire/EMS Department Training and Leadership Program Manager. “We hope this year-long program will allow our firefighters to feel equipped both mentally and physically to handle their jobs.”
O2X Human Performance has successfully worked with hundreds of public safety agencies nationwide to provide innovative training and education aimed to help first responders finish their careers as strong as they started.
The training will take place at the PG County Fire/EMS Training Facility 9190 Commo Road Cheltenham, MD 20623
