Keeping cool is more than a mind game
Important research has been conducted over the past few years in respect to firefighter cooling and hydration, designed to ensure the firefighters' core temperatures are maintained at a safe level
The Northern Territory Fire and Rescue Service hosted a Bushfire CRC sponsored seminar on Tuesday 10 April in Darwin to familiarise firefighters and staff with the research outcomes, and followed this with a workshop designed to develop a matrix for application of suitable cooling techniques in variable conditions.
Presenters included Dr Brad Aisbett (Deakin University), Dr Glen Deakin (James Cook University) and Dr Ian Norton and Matt Brearley (National Crisis Care and Trauma Response Centre).
