On-Site NFPA 1582 Firefighter Medical Exams
Call us today
The risks associated with being a firefighter are enormous. The natural of the job exposes firefighters to heat, smoke, as well as other toxins. While we have personal protective equipment to assist in combating these elements, a firefighter’s health plays a major role in their ability to perform the most essential to advanced job tasks on a given incident.

Heart attacks are still the number one killer of firefighters! The physical and mental stress a firefighter endures while performing their job can be equated to that of an athlete. Even so, studies have now emerged recently that indicate firefighters are at greater risk for cancer now. As Fire Chiefs, our greatest resource is our people and, in my opinion, our greatest resource for the health and wellness of our people is SiteMed.

SiteMed’s comprehensive physical exam and screening processes provides flexible scheduling which lowers our health risk management thru on-site screenings, one on one consultations and comprehensive NFPA 1582 compliant medical exams. Through the one on one consultation, firefighters can speak directly to the provider, and follow ups are done by SiteMed.

The physicians and staff of SiteMed are professional, caring and experienced. They offer a cost-effective health and wellness strategy that protects our greatest resource.

Fire Chief, Sherrills Ford-Terrell Fire & Rescue


The Atlanta Fire Rescue Department includes nearly 40 separate stations and work locations, and over 900 members are involved in the Wellness program. SiteMed set up at various locations throughout our organization so to minimize travel time and downtime for our units. 

SiteMed personnel performed their duties in a professional and customer service oriented fashion. They are always willing to accommodate our members’ work schedule. 

A few members were identified as having more serious medical condition……I believe that SiteMed can be credited with saving the lives of several members from the Atlanta Fire Rescue Department.

The Town of Apex Fire Department utilizes SiteMed for our annual department physicals. Their staff handled themselves in a very professional manner explaining every test thoroughly. The fire department personnel was pleased with the annual physical and we received very positive comments as to how thorough both the SiteMed staff and physician were during the individual physicals. 

I will have to say that the SiteMed physical 
is pursuant to current NFPA performance standards 
and we’re pleased with the services received.

Health and safety of firefighters is a major concern for the Chief Officer. We, as a fire service, have come a 
long way over the last couple of decades to ensure the health and wellness of our firefighters. Utilizing the 
NFPA standard allows our department to fulfill our obligations to the firefighters and SiteMed provides that standard. 

SiteMed has provided us with a quality and affordable service since 2008. The staff at SiteMed has always been courteous and professional in their evaluations of our personnel. The administrative staff responds to our questions in a prompt manner and provides suggestions that would improve our personnel's health.  

Dr. Fernandez and his staff have been a valuable asset to our Health and Safety program and we look forward to continue using them as our department’s physician.

As a result of their thorough evaluation, SiteMed was instrumental in saving the life of one of our firefighters last year. 

SiteMed provided our firefighters a convenient means to obtain their on-site NFPA 1582 medical examinations. The two phase program and blood work results were provided in a timely manner and allowed for one on one consultations with the doctor the same day of the physical exam. We greatly appreciate the professionalism of the doctors and staff. Thank YOU!

Our experience with Sitemed has been outstanding. The physicals provided to us this year were very thorough, and we had several issues caught that had not been identified previously. Additionally, the turnaround time was almost non-existent. I had the clearance forms in my hand before the doctor left the firehouse. 

I can't say enough about the level of professionalism we experienced in our first year with Sitemed, and I look forward to continuing our partnership.

Sitemed has been a pleasure to work with as Piedmont Park Fire District takes the health and fitness of our personnel to be one of the top core components to the safety of our firefighters. 

Sitemed has proven to me that service is important by being available to answer all of our questions and meeting our needs. Being able to speak with a Doctor with one phone call was a plus when we needed him. 

Thank you for your service and we look forward to work with you for many years to come!

I have had many companies to our fire department to give us physicals in the 23 years I have been a fireman. Your group from SiteMed came out and gave the best physical you could ask for. The team you had was very friendly and professional. They tested us on things that no other company has ever done.

At SiteMed, it's not about the clearance letter
