Mindful, Professional, Ready to Help

HISTORY

Our history with NFPA 1582, originated when Division Chief, Tamara (Tammy) Lopes introduced us to NFPA 1582 medical examinations over 11 years ago. Our sister organization, ARC Health & Wellness (based only in Nevada) was awarded a contract with the City of Reno to conduct these specialized Medical Examinations on their Firefighters. Chief Lopes insisted that our Physicians understand what Firefighters go through, including 24 hour ride-a-longs, that we suit up in Turnouts/SCBA and conduct Fire Suppression Duties in Fire Chambers. But most importantly, Chief Lopes help mold our organization to be focused on NFPA 1582 in determining Fitness for Duty and helping to prolong the career of their Industrial Athletes. Tammy Lopes is still actively part of the NFPA 1582 Committee, she continues to help write new NFPA 1582 and her name is listed in 2018 Edition of NFPA 1582.

ARC Health & Wellness has worked with Firefighters for over a decade and we have refined our skills and abilities to conduct a thorough NFPA 1582 Compliant Medical Exam in both in a Medical Facility and “Onsite” in an affordable manner. Fire Departments throughout the region, such as Las Vegas Fire and Rescue and North Las Vegas Fire Department have brought our organization in to so they can have “Onsite” medical clinics on their property. Other groups, rely on our experience to travel to them with our Mobile Medical Units to conduct NFPA 1582 exams “Onsite” like Kingman Fire Department in Arizona or South Lake Tahoe Fire Department in California. Most importantly, we still serve every Fire Departments that started working with us and we’ve never lost a Fire Department client.

It’s taken us over 10 years to get to this point and we are ready for new Fire Departments Clients throughout the Western Region. In 2018, the principals of ARC Health & Wellness created a “Spin-Off” company is known as, “1582” to serve Fire Departments outside of the State of Nevada. We are prepared to bring our experienced team of Physicians and technical medical staff to your Fire Department to complete these specialized Firefighter Medical Examinations.
