Commitment to Community Program Details
The Cardiac One Risk Evaluation Program was created to provide a preliminary screening for cardiovascular disease for firefighters in Colorado.
In accordance to State Statute 14-172, our program provides firefighter cardiovascular health benefits. Please see the website for the Colorado Firefighter Heart and Cancer Benefits Trust for more information.
This program may be performed at your location for an additional cost or at our facility on the CSU campus in Fort Collins, Colorado, at no additional cost. On-site testing requires at least ten individuals for testing.
Cardiac One Risk Evaluation Program Screening Information
We will complete each of the following tests
- Resting 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG)
- Fasting glucose
- Fasting lipids
- Waist circumference
- Resting blood pressure
- Review of other risk factors including family and personal health history and smoking habits
Based on the results of the screenings, we will recommend the next level test(s). The next recommended tests are based on the physician’s interpretation of the ECG and the number of risk factors. Physician interpretation of the ECG may take up to one week.
We will also provide verification that the screening was performed as required by the State Statute to apply for benefits.
This data is considered private health information and only the individual will have access to the results of the testing, not the department.
The cost for each individual firefighter is $50 in addition to travel costs. Contact the Colorado Firefighter Heart and Cancer Benefits Trust to determine if your agency qualifies for reimbursement. We encourage fire agencies to work with neighboring fire agencies to reduce the travel costs by sharing the cost among agencies.
Non-firefighters, such as spouses or community members, can also participate in the screening for $100.
