Emergency responders, stress, and coping: A proposal of research

16 November 2010


Firefighters (FF) and other emergency responders (ER) are professionals that require overall good health and physical conditioning. These professionals are also under a great deal of stress in their daily duties. Due to frequent traumatic experiences, ERs are at great risk of psychological disorders (Ben-Ezra, 2006), sleeping difficulties, and the general inability to function properly in normal, everyday situations (DSM-IV-TR, 2000). Utilizing the stress and athletic injury model (Andersen & Williams, 1988), this study will examine the relationship between stressful events, the emergency responders’ perceptions of stress and injury rates.
