The agency wide Physical Fitness Program (PFP) allows all eligible full-time employees flexibility in scheduling work hours to allow up to three hours a week for participation in approved fitness activities. Authorization of fitness time is contingent upon operational demands and subject to supervisory approval.

 
You can't spell challenge without change.

Health and wellness challenges and incentive programs are held throughout the year and involve different aspects of fitness and healthy lifestyle choices. Health and wellness challenges provide an incentive to challenge yourself and enjoy a fun competition with other employees throughout the agency. These challenges play an integral part in improving our agency’s physical and mental health and camaraderie within the workforce and family life.
