From Judy Gilleland - City Manager
Health and Fitness is definitely a priority for many members of the Division of Fire as demonstrated by firefighters recently participating in endurance runs in the local area. Firefighters Glenn Schlub and John Howard participated in the ½ Marathon (13.1 miles) at the 15th Annual Air Force Marathon, WPAFB, on September 17th and Fire Chief Steve Botts and Captain Todd Day ran the 32rd Annual Columbus Marathon (26.2 miles) on October 16th.
In 2009 the MFD was awarded an AFG grant for Health and Fitness. This program along with the City’s wellness program, Vitality, help our personnel develop and maintain healthy lifestyles.
