Abstract

Fire and rescue service personnel can experience high levels of exposure to both occupational and post-traumatic stress, with the interplay between these generating a range of complex stress responses. The nature and cultural context of fire service work can, in turn, impact the take up and effectiveness of stress interventions. The development of appropriate processes for the prevention of, and responses to, stress exposure is therefore a crucial managerial issue. A consideration of such issues is presented, alongside an evaluation of the likely success of various stress interventions.
