Tim and Sheila Yee donated a FireFit firefighter fitness trainer to the Dalhart Volunteer Fire Department
(VFD) on Thursday July 6. Tim Yee is a volunteer with the Dalhart VFD.

Keeping physically fit is very important for firefighters. According to the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), over 40% of firefighter deaths in the U.S. in 2016 were due to overexertion/stress/medical issues. “Being on the department for the past four years, I’ve learned that being a firefighter demands more physical endurance than brute strength. Our department takes training seriously,” Tim Yee said.
