Firefighters and fire officers have very stressful roles. Whether career or volunteer, critical situations demanding physical exertion, uncertainty and compressed time frames for action put extraordinary pressure on the minds and bodies of firefighters and fire officers. Mental training is a key component of progressive training and safety programs. The M.A.P. provides the best road map available to implement a structured curriculum dedicated to minimizing mental letdowns and maximizing performance. It has been developed in a format that is easily adaptable as a self-study program or can be used by students and instructors as a workshop curriculum.
