Fitness testing

Year: 2018

Nominating section: National women's committee

Policy text:

Following on from the Firefit Conference and a notable increase in social media activity around the drill ground assessment and recommended strength test we recognise those who carried out the original research have a vast knowledge but the research has failed to take into account an ageing workforce and a more diverse subject base should have been utilised for the original research.

Firefit have recently asked Fire and Rescue Services to support further research and Conference asks that the Executive Council immediately:

• engages in this research through Brigade, Regional and National Officials

• engages with the NWC

• publically supports this research.

This further research is to ensure a full and diverse subject base is used in the future.
