ZFD earns LIFE award

The Zionsville Fire Department can call themselves a leader in fitness.

The department was given a Leadership in Fitness Excellence award during the 2012 Indiana Emergency Response Conference in the Combination/Volunteer category. The award was co-presented by the Indiana Fire Chiefs Association and Public Safety Medical and was presented during an awards Banquette on Sept. 14.

According to a press release, the award recognizes exemplary efforts of the public safety department to improve the wellness and fitness of their personnel.

“I think it speaks well of the department and it feels great to be recognized from the other departments within the state,” said Jeff Beam, ZFD captain of training and safety. “It’s great that we are recognized to be leading in that field.”

Beam said the overall plan of the Zionsville department is to maintain the health and wellness of an employee and more than about having physically fit employees.
