The Colorado Springs Fire Department has been awarded $56,000 from the 2012 Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. This award is to purchase TRX Force Kits for each firefighter, equipment mounting brackets for each station and TRX Force Level 3 training for 10 Peer Fitness Trainers. This is very exciting news as we are the first Fire Department in the nation to receive funding for this type of equipment and training.
You are invited to see this system and training in action on Thursday, June 27 between 10:00 and 11:00 a.m. at the CSFD Headquarters building, 375 Printers Parkway, Colorado Springs, CO. Please park on the far south side of the complex and you will see the training area to the east. Captain Rob Coffey will be available for interviews on the grant and the overall program.
