Firefighter Fitness in Dubai
Several months ago, TACFIT Fire Fighter was contacted by 911 Fire Safety & Occupational Training based out of Dubai, UAE. They were in the process of researching and developing a comprehensive Health & Wellness Program to implement into the fire service throughout the Gulf Region. They discovered TACFIT FireFighter and realized that we had already designed a comprehensive, step by step, health & wellness program that met all of their needs. Everything they were looking for was found in one place; from detailed medical exams and contract/policy language to biannual fitness assessment and a comprehensive fitness program for firefighters to participate in.
911 quickly moved to bring us in as partners in their quest to improve firefighter fitness and health. They secured our travel arrangements and brought us to Dubai to participate in the Intersec Fire Expo and present our services to the Dubai Ministry of Civil Defense. This was a first step in what we believe will be a strong partnership with 911, and we look forward to implementing firefighter health & wellness programs throughout the Gulf Region.
Intersec is a prominent conference and trade show focusing on fire protection, law enforcement, security, and industrial health and safety. Intersec 2013 was opened by HH Sheikh Mansoor bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. The 2013 edition featured 990 exhibitors from 54 countries and was close to 10% larger than the previous year, building on its reputation as the most significant trading platform and networking event for security and safety professionals in the Middle East.
It was an honor to represent TACFIT at Intersec and we were very fortunate to have the opportunity to visit such a beautiful city and create bonds with many of the people we met. In the coming weeks we will be sharing some of our experiences with you and introducing you to some of the people that we met. We look forward to announcing our return to the UAE in the near future.
