Designing the Fitness Program examines the physical demands on public safety officers, as well as an array of related health and safety issues.

In proposing that each public safety organization implement a fitness program for its personnel, the author provides a variety of options for ensuring that the standards and test regimens adopted by a department are suitable, both in terms of individual members and the roles that they fulfill. LeCuyer's unique, thought-provoking analysis of test protocols will help organizations avoid many of the pitfalls associated with modern labor laws and declaring anyone, whether rehabilitated member or new recruit, fit for duty. Using his outlines for levels of participation and exercise prescription, a qualified fitness coordinator will be able to institute a viable program in any department, no matter how large or small the available budget. Whether fire or police, whether rural or metropolitan, public safety organizations worldwide will benefit from paying greater attention to the health and fitness of their members. This book is a prime tool for all concerned.
