Annual Medical Physicals for hte Santa Fe Fire Department
See Bid/RFP documents for additional submission details.
The City of Santa Fe Fire Department (SFFD) staff performs an important and dangerous job. The
nature of the work and associated stress that our personnel face, place them at a much higher risk
for cardiovascular disease and cancer. Furthermore, there is a high rate of injuries in the fire service.
The fire service in general and specifically the SFFD has the ability to improve these statistics by
implementing regular physical examinations. A comprehensive medical examination can have a
tremendous impact on reducing firefighter line of duty deaths and/or injuries by identifying and
treating the higher risk individuals and detecting cancer early with bloodwork and ultrasounds. A
medical evaluation can provide a baseline for every firefighter and allows for detections of any
change in the firefighter’s health during his/her career.
2) The SFFD is seeking a Professional Services Agreement with a company that will provide
comprehensive medical evaluations for our personnel. The contractor shall provide annual physical
examinations with ultrasounds and blood tests for approximately 170 City of Santa Fe employed Fire
Department personnel (hereinafter referred to as “firefighter”). The annual medical evaluation shall
be completed every 12 months and be compared to baseline and subsequent evaluation to identify
clinically relevant changes. The annual medical physical shall be provided by the contractor through
the use of a board certified MD and/or mid-level healthcare provider defined as a certified nurse
practitioner or physician’s assistant.
