Fire Department Physicals

At Physicians Immediate Care, firefighter physical exams are performed following NFPA 1582 standards. The fully compliant NFPA 1582 process includes multiple tests to assess the firefighter’s physical condition and ability to perform on the job. As this rigorous testing involves two clinic visits, Physicians Immediate Care can work with fire departments to create a convenient schedule with minimal impact on the department. Firefighters should expect the following tests:

  • Vital signs will be taken, including height, weight, blood pressure, and pulse
  • Complete physical exam
  • Vision exam
  • Audiogram
  • Chest X-Ray
  • Electrocardiogram
  • Pulmonary Function Exam
  • Blood Tests – CMP, CBC, Lipid Panel
  • Urinalysis by Dipstick
  • Other testing requested by fire department
