We now know, with certainty, that fire is not necessarily our worst enemy on the fireground. Its by-products are! Whether you’re a career, volunteer or paid-on-call firefighter, means that you can no longer approach what you do as a casual job or hobby.
In this, our 51st episode of “5-Alarm Task Force,” Chief Anthony Correia joins us to discuss the specific physiological and mental stressors of fighting fire. His explanation begins with your visceral and mental response to a dispatch, through your actions and your body’s physiological responses on the fireground and what occurs when you think you’ve finished.
Chief Correia paints for you with a “broad stroke of the brush” to cover some of today’s most important characteristics of firefighters, including your wellness, fitness, fitness-for-duty, your mental and emotional health and the Cancer Initiative.
