Couple that with the mental stresses of emergency response: witness to life and property loss, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition, and we are equal to a ticking time bomb. Come learn how to identify the signs of stress and how to combat stress in order to maintain mental wellness.
After attending this presentation, you will:
-Understand the mental stresses of firefighting and EMS
-Learn how individuals react to stress
-Discuss actions needed to combat stress
