The IAFF has been collaborating with the U.S. Navy on a program to improve the fitness, health and wellness of Navy fire fighters by encouraging them to become more active. In January 2022, the IAFF launched Integrated Group Navy Fire Instruction, Training and Education (IGNITE), a comprehensive 18-month wellness-fitness program, in collaboration with fire fighters from Navy Region Mid-Atlantic (NRMA). The program has been funded by the Navy through a two-year federal grant. The IGNITE program involves eight IAFF federal locals in the Mid-Atlantic region representing more than 500 federal fire fighters. If successful, the program could be rolled out across U.S. Navy bases nationwide. Created as an extension of the IAFF’s Fit to Thrive (F2T) program, IGNITE aims to do more than provide exercise routines and nutrition tips.
