Embarking on a journey into the Fire Service: A Message from the Chief

A probationary firefighter’s journey into the fire service is a challenging and demanding experience. The fire service is not only physically demanding but also mentally and emotionally taxing. Proper nutrition plays a crucial role in supporting a probationary firefighter’s overall well-being and performance. Here’s our breakdown of the journey and the importance of proper nutrition:

Probationary Firefighter Training:

  1. Physical Demands:
    • Firefighters undergo rigorous physical training during their probationary period. This includes strength training, cardiovascular workouts, and simulation exercises to prepare them for real-life firefighting situations.
    • Proper nutrition is essential for fueling these demanding physical activities, aiding muscle recovery, and sustaining energy levels.
  2. Stress and Mental Strain:
    • Probationary firefighters face high-stress situations, both in training and real emergencies. Proper nutrition can contribute to mental resilience and help manage stress levels.
    • Nutrient-dense foods support cognitive function, helping firefighters stay focused, alert, and make quick decisions under pressure.

The Importance of Proper Nutrition:

  1. Energy Requirements:
    • Firefighters burn a significant amount of calories during training and emergency responses. Adequate nutrition ensures they meet their energy requirements, preventing fatigue and enhancing performance.
  2. Muscle Recovery:
    • Intense physical training can lead to muscle fatigue and micro-tears. Proper nutrition, including sufficient protein intake, supports muscle repair and recovery, reducing the risk of injuries and promoting overall strength.
  3. Hydration:
    • Firefighters are often exposed to high temperatures and wear heavy gear, leading to increased fluid loss through sweat. Proper hydration is crucial for maintaining body temperature, preventing dehydration, and sustaining performance.
  4. Immune System Support:
    • Firefighters operate in environments with potential exposure to smoke, toxins, and other hazards. Proper nutrition, rich in vitamins and antioxidants, helps support the immune system, reducing the risk of illness.
  5. Long-Term Health:
    • The demands of firefighting can take a toll on long-term health. Proper nutrition contributes to overall well-being, helping to manage weight, reduce the risk of chronic diseases, and promote longevity in the fire service career.

Practical Tips for Proper Nutrition:

  1. Balanced Diet:
    • Include a variety of foods, including lean proteins, whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats, to ensure a well-rounded and nutrient-dense diet.
  2. Meal Timing:
    • Eat regular meals and snacks to maintain steady energy levels throughout the day. Timing meals around training sessions can optimize performance.
  3. Hydration:
    • Drink an adequate amount of water throughout the day, especially in high-temperature environments. Avoid excessive caffeine and sugary beverages.
  4. Supplementation:
    • Consider supplements like vitamins and minerals if dietary needs are not met through food alone, but consult with a healthcare professional before making significant changes.

A probationary firefighter’s journey into the fire service is physically and mentally demanding. Proper nutrition is a foundational element that supports performance, recovery, and overall well-being throughout the challenging and rewarding career in the fire service.

These are recommendations, and heating may vary based on your personal preferences.

First, all meals are packaged refrigerated not frozen. However, if you are outside our hand delivery area, your meals were packaged with dry ice. 

So during the shipping period, the dry ice will freeze the meals to ensure they come to you fresh and with no chance of being warm. We have tried all different refrigerants, which do not last with weather/heat and any chance of delays with UPS. The last thing we want are meals showing up warm or spoiled due to weather/time. If you have received meals from other companies with gel packs, we can pretty much guarantee they were frozen when they went in the box.

We are required by the Department of Health and the FDA, to keep the meals at 40 degrees or below to meet all food safety guidelines.

We can assure you that your meals are made fresh just a day or sometimes a few hours before going out the door. Just take the meals, place them in the fridge and they will be perfectly fresh to enjoy.

Central Florida delivery times do vary depending on the number of local orders placed during the week. You can expect to receive an email on Monday morning with your delivery times (please make sure you check your junk/spam folder). Now, we will clarify, that we do our best to reach your delivery location at the designated time, however, traffic and weather can cause delays.

We also wish to make you aware, that if you live within the $6.00 HAND DELIVERY AREA, you must be home at time of delivery OR provide a cooler OR provide an alternate delivery location. Our meals are fresh and never frozen, delivered in temperature controlled vans so they are cold but cannot be place on your door step for a long period. You can provide your own cooler with refrigerant, but we cannot be responsible if they damage the packaging.

For our Family receiving their meals via UPS (those outside the $6.00 delivery area), we are limited to shipping times regulated by UPS. Everything we ship will have no longer than 3 days maximum and your are not required to be home. Our boxes are packed with refrigerant (dry ice) and are well insulated. *Note: your meals may arrive frozen due to the dry ice, remove from box and place in the fridge they will defrost and be good as new.

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Yes, with our meal delivery plan, you have free range to pick which meals sound best. We update our menu weekly, so while we do choose which meals we’re preparing that week, you get to decide which meals and sides you’d like delivered. Our recipes contain ingredients and flavors from various cultures and traditions, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. They’re delivered fresh and never frozen.

First, we are truly sorry that this has happened. As much as we stress our concerns with UPS management there is not much we can do.

We personally take your package (with extreme care) to the UPS facility, were it is handed over and into their care. Beyond that we have no control of what happens next and therefore can not be financially responsible for any damage.

Please make your claim with UPS and if you do happen to need any information from us, to assist in recovering your loss,  we are more than willing to provide the information (if available).

First, we apologize that your meals did not arrive when they should have. This is a tough answer and one you’re mostly likely not going to be happy with. Accountability in any business is important and we really don’t believe in pointing fingers, however once we have delivered your package/shipment to the shipper, they are now in control and believe us we wish we could be.

When we were hand delivering all of our meals, we were in control. If your meals arrived damaged, warm or with any issue we would refund part or all of your order without question. As we grow, we rely on others to do their part, as if it were us and unfortunately that is not always the case. As a small business relying on much larger businesses, with the resources get things done, we have to trust it will get done correctly.

Now since you’ve asked this question, it means they didn’t and the shipping company has failed. As much as we would like to refund money for the mistakes of others, we are a small business with a lot less capital than those that have made the issue. We advise anyone who has had this experience to take pictures of inside the box, record the date you received it and file a claim immediately with UPS.

Yes, because everything we cook/serve is prepared fresh and never sees a preservative. Your meals stay fresh for 7–10 days in the refrigerator. We do, however, have a disclaimer on salads. Due to the nature of greens, we shorten the shelf life to 3–4 days in the refrigerator. Our meals do freeze well and this a great option, if you can’t eat all you bought.

Absolutely. You can freeze your meals, especially if you do not intend to eat them within the 7-day “best if used by” date. That said, fresh is always the best. Please remember when heating from frozen, additional time is required from the time stated above.

Fire Dept. Meals would strongly advise against freezing meals that contain uncooked greens, like salads.

Not only can you heat your meals in the oven, but this is how we typically reheat our meals! We have changed our packaging and they area no longer oven-safe, so you will need to transfer the meals to an oven-safe dish. We would recommend 10 – 15 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 degrees or until the desired temp is reached. Heating instructions are on the label. These are recommendations and heating may vary based on your personal preferences.
