Firefighter Health Study

The call is officially out for your assistance in volunteering to participate in a research study relating to firefighter health and specifically that of the cardiorespiratory fitness (CFR) in firefighters.  The study is for us, about us, and will hopefully support results that will help us maintain a healthy lifestyle and assist in identifying risks that can be addressed and more importantly, corrected. All data is confidential. See attached consent form.

We need an additional 20 participants to partake in the study.

Any questions contact any of the Union Principal officers.

SPPD & SPFD Basketball

The police play basketball from 12-2PM at Battle Creek Rec Center on Tuesdays and are open to having anyone from the Fire Department that wants to play to join in.  It is pick-up basketball so no need to have a team, just show up and play.  Obviously, this supports health and wellness but Rec Center programing usually starts at 2:00 PM so there might be an opportunity for positive interactions with police and fire as youth come into the space for programing.

Any questions contact:
Sergeant Jeff Thissen
Saint Paul Police Department
