Thirteen male instructors were monitored during a total of 44 live fire training exercises (ambient temperature 74+/-42 degrees C). Exposure time during the 'Hot Fire' (HF), 'Fire Behaviour' and 'Fire Attack' exercises was 33.0+/-7.9 min (n=30); 26.3+/-5.5 min (n=6); and 7.3+/-2.6 min (n=8) respectively. At the end of the exercises, mean core temperature (t(core)) was 38.5+/-0.9 degrees C (n=32), however eight instructors had a t(core) above 39 degrees C. The mean maximum temperature under the… CONTINUE READING
