"It's been 20 years since 9/11 and the anniversary has taken on an additional resonance for New York City firefighters and their families who now grapple with a new set of unexpected challenges," says Nancy Carbone, founder and executive director of Friends of Firefighters. "COVID-19 has brought with it major change for our firefighters. And while our Bravest continue to face these difficult times head-on, we know that sadness, anxiety, and stress can have a cumulative effect that can cause disruptions in daily lives."

When discussing the program, Michael Leonardi of #Notonmywatch adds: "The pandemic has brought on a new wave of challenges to our overall health and wellness. This partnership will allow FDNY members and their families to gain access to our proprietary program, an "All-in-one" Health and Fitness coaching platform delivered by a community of licensed and certified professionals in fitness, nutrition, musculoskeletal health, mental health and more. The opportunity to deliver these free services to the FDNY community is both an honor and privilege. These heroes and their families have sacrificed so much to serve our community, it's only fitting that we continue to serve them to the best of our abilities."
