Coyote Camp Trekkers Trail Magic 08When You Want To Satisfy Your Crew

In addition to burning calories, firefighters, search and rescue specialists, dive rescue personnel, disaster response teams and emergency service crews also burn carbohydrates, proteins, fats, sugars, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Of course, there is also the huge amount of sweat we all generate during strenuous work. Replenishing our bodies during and after these operations is vital to maintaining a strong crew. Whether you’re a firefighter, a SAR Specialist, a diver or an IC, we must all think beyond just donuts and coffee to sustain ourselves and our crews. We must think balance and nutrition.
