MUSCATINE, Iowa – Firefighters from the Muscatine Fire Department will be participating in the 2022 Corridor Heart Walk, part of the American Heart Association (AHA) national heart walk events, on May 7 in Kinnick Stadium on the campus of the University of Iowa in Iowa City, Iowa.


The firefighters are being led by this year’s captain Firefighter/Paramedic Colton Pauls who noted that in 2020 almost two-thirds of firefighter deaths were related to heart disease and complications. 


Firefighters will be asking the public for help in raising money in support of the AHA Heart Walk and to support the American Heart Association staff, volunteers, and researchers who continuously supply research, statistics, and promote heart and vascular health.


For more information or to donate, visit MFD WALK or visit the Muscatine Fire Department Facebook page.
