Tune into the Valley Watch Radio show on KTAR to hear more about public safety topics and information. Hosted by Division Chief Doug Mummert, this radio show informs listeners about what the Phoenix Fire Department and its community partners are doing to keep them safe.
Mayor Greg Stanton, Councilman Daniel Valenzuela and Olympic Gold Medalist Misty Hyman kicked off FitPHX, a new city health initiative to get Phoenix in shape.
FitPHX will better connect Phoenix communities to existing city health-related programs and services by encouraging participation in physical-fitness events and other activities that promote wellness.
"FitPHX is an opportunity to get out, get fit and be healthy," said Stanton, who through exercise and better nutrition lost 50 pounds in 2009. “It doesn’t have to be difficult to get in shape and we’re here to make it easy so Phoenix can be one of the healthiest cities in the nation.”
