Salus Saunas Attended FDIC Show in Indianapolis
While it might sound unusual for a company that manufactures and sells saunas to visit an FDIC show, what you’ll learn is that there’s only one degree of separation between what first responders do and how we as a sauna supply company can help.
With many unaware of the trauma and toxicity such professionals experience on a day-to-day basis, we feel it our duty to do our part in spreading the word of health and showing our support in any way we can, however little…
In fact, according to the International Association of Firefighters, upwards of 60% of servicemen and women die from cancer caused by on-the-job circumstances. Further, withstanding the evident chronic health complications associated with such a profession, firefighting is an extremely physically-intensive career, with many being left fatigued, both mentally and physically, at the end of each day.
Salus Saunas is a proud supporter of first responders in America and around the world, offering exclusive deals and first-class servicing to all those involved. Additionally, we also partner with Fire Stations across America to both learn of their daily challenges and offer our help where we can.
That, in short, is why we’ve attended the FDIC show, both this year and every year that follows!
What is the FDIC Show?
More than a typical trade show, FDIC International provides thousands of first responders globally with a world-class event comprising workshops, innovations, instructional presentations, and industry exhibitions.
Aimed at both learning, sharing, and connecting in formal and informal mediums regarding the fire & rescue profession, the FIDC Show in Indianapolis is an experience like no other, especially for those who boast a passion for such an industry.
Whether for education, networking, or matchmaking, FDIC International brings together top experts from around the world to showcase annually the latest on all-things fire & rescue.
So, you might be wondering why we here at Salus Saunas paid a visit to the show; after all, we sell saunas, not fire rescue equipment!
Well, here’s why…
Why We Attended the FDIC Show
As a company that supports first responders in any way that they can, we here at Salus Saunas felt it necessary to show face at the annual FDIC Show in Indianapolis. Not much that it was an obligation but because WE have a passion and appreciation for those who serve.
Further, because of our expertise in saunas and sauna use, we KNOW the true value of such therapy when it comes to the health and well-being of our first responders, knowing all too well the role that it can play in a firefighter’s life.
Through partnering with many fire departments across America in conjunction with visiting the FDIC show as an exhibition, we’ve been able to get our infrared saunas into the hands of several fire departments across the country. However, the job isn’t finished…
The Benefits of Infrared Sauna Therapy
Starting with a fun fact that not many of you might know, many first responders took part in a 30-day sauna protocol after the event on 9/11. The results were nothing short of profound.
From the elimination of pulmonary medication and the reduction in musculoskeletal problems, cognitive dysfunction, and mood irregularities to the incidence rates of work missed dropping dramatically, infrared sauna use proved extremely effective at removing toxins and thus improving the overall health and well-being of responders.
Disregarding first responders for a minute, other general health benefits of infrared sauna therapy include but are certainly not limited to detoxification, increased longevity, improved circulation, pain relief, anxiety relief, muscular recovery, cardiovascular improvements, and even weight control…
In short, first responders, and firefighters, in particular, are a different breed. Not only are their careers physically and mentally demanding but they require a critical level of care and attention to their health and well-being to ensure that they’re performing at a high-level day in and day out.
While there are many interventions available and necessary to employ, sauna use, and particularly infrared sauna use, has shown extremely effective in many ways, both for first responders and the general public.
