ABSTRACT
The article describes the aerobics workout program of the United States Border Patrol which can be adopted as a model for emergency responders, such as firefighters and emergency medical personnel. The program, which consists of measured walking and running activities, has decreased deaths related to cardiovascular disease among the officers who have joined the program. Other aerobic activities, such as swimming and cycling can be integrated in the program.
