Robb Wolf on sleepy firefighters and diabetes

Check it…

This video is part of a series that talks about the nuts and bolts of heart disease in Firefighters and Cops. I could rewrite the entire scenario but instead I will post an excerpt and throw Robb a bone by linking the rest of the article and sending all 15 of my readers to his site.

“If a police officer, fire fighter or similar city worker has some kind of major medical event while on duty, the state of Nevada considers that a workman’s comp issue. Dealing with the initial medical expenses can run upwards of $1 million while the medical claims to retire that same individual average $1.2 million. That is a serious chunk-o-change out of the city coffers to say nothing of the trauma experienced by the person who suffered this event, their families, co-workers etc. These events were not unique to UNLV. Anyone in the police/fire scene was well aware of the health of our service personnel and knew something should be done to help these people. I want to get this story on video and include the key players to describe their part in this story, so I’m just going to supply a 30,000 ft over flight for now.”
