For the past 90 days several members of the department have been competing in a weight loss contest affectionately named ShredFest. The goal of the contest was to challenge firefighters to lose weight through exercise and healthy nutrition habits. 46 members entered to lose a total of 158.1 lbs collectively. We hope to continue the contest next year to keep our members healthy.
