Can you handle the heat? Keeping cool on the job

View descriptionShare

Heat stress comes with the job when you’re a firefighter.

But if you’re fighting a bush fire in the middle of a national park, or on a busy city motorway, what is the most effective way to cool down? How effectively you can do this has life-threatening implications. 

This ground-breaking partnership with NSW Fire and Rescue puts a scientific lens on the issue and seeks to find the best solution to heat stress.

In this episode:

Andrew Richardson, health and fitness adviser with Fire and Rescue NSW

Dr Hugh Fullagar, senior lecturer with the School of Sport, Exercise and Rehabilitation at UTS

Mark Gabriel, rescue firefighter at Fire and Rescue NSW
