Product Information

Firefighting is an inherently dangerous calling. Firefighters can be exposed to extreme environments from the firehouse to the fireground. Occupational health risks - occupational cancers, cardiovascular events, and behavioral health injuries - continue to be the scourge of the fire service. Surviving the Fire Service contains vital information about cancer, cardiovascular risk, medical exams and screening, nutrition, managing heat stress, women in the fire service, human performance and the tactical athlete and fireground survival. This book addresses how to manage and reduce risks in the fire service and use the tools you need to implement within your fire department to address each of these threats.
