On behalf of the Providence Fire Department I wanted to extend our sincere appreciation. You received extremely high ratings in all categories. It is extremely rewarding to me to know that since the conference, many firefighters in Providence are using recipes from The Healthy Firehouse Cookbook on a regular basis for firehouse meals(my own station included). Furthermore, their is a much heightened awareness of the importance that diet and exercise play in overall firefighter health.
