However, the Fire Service and providing Firefighter Physicals, has comprised the majority of our clientele over the past 30 years.
North Greenville Fitness actually came into existence because of the Fire Service. In 1980, O.S.H.A. established that as of September 15, 1990, all fire departments in the United States must have a Health Screening and Fitness Program. This regulation is 1920.156, subpart L, Appendix A, which states, "employers shall assure that employees who are expected to do interior structural fire fighting are physically capable of perfoming those duties which may be assigned to them during emergencies." The regulation also states, "the employer shall not permit employees with known heart disease, epilepsy, or emphysema to participate in fire brigade emergency activities unless a physician's certificate is provided." Thus, North Greenville Fitness was established with its related services and has also been proven to work well in markets other than the fire service.
