Fit to Rescue ME 2014

Heart attack is the leading cause of firefighters dying in the line of duty. The risk of death of heart attack for police officers is also greater than that of people working in most other professions.


Weight Watchers of Maine recognizes the risks encountered on the job by our states’s first responders. We are aware of the enormous stress these men and women live with on and off the job. Death by heart attack is disproportionately high for first responders. We can help reduce the risk!

Weight Watchers program is a proven healthy way to care for hearts and overall health. Weight Watchers is recommended to their patients by more health care professionals than any other weight loss program.

Weight Watchers of Maine proudly announces Fit to Rescue ME 2014.
