Research On Medical Co-Response/Firefighter Resilience

The Employer has agreed to fund research which will explore the wellbeing of members, particularly in relation to medical calls.

The research team is looking for around 50 Firefighters to participate.

The Union has been consulted regarding this project and the Union supports members being involved.

Hopefully the outcome of the research will improve the development of necessary support services that can be made available to members.

Information will be sent out to selected sites shortly.
