Fork and Hose Co. and the Firefighter Throwdown are taking it to the next level!  Check back every Tuesday for a "Tips to Throwdown", where we will provide tips and suggestions on eating healthier in the firehouse.  And don't worry  "Throwdown Thursday" isn't going anywhere, it's just getting better with feature recipes and calories counts.  Firefighters and competitors alike can all benefit from healthier cooking because as we know, cardiac related events are the leading cause of firefighter fatalities.  Through proper nutrition and fitness we can help change this staggering statistic!

The next Firefighter Throwdown is taking place at the IAFC Fire Rescue International in Atlanta, GA on August 28th & 29th.  Check back to Firefighter Throwdown to apply and for additional information.

Watch the video below to learn more about the Firefighter Throwdown.  Our friends John Carpenter, founder of the Throwdown, and Chris Cerci, firefighter/competitor, explain why health and fitness are so important.
