It was just a week ago that we published an article about evaluating the health of wildland firefighters and about how difficult it has been to get good data.
Now YOU may be able to help.
Current and former wildland firefighters- please consider participating in an important research project about wildland firefighters’ physical and mental health. We need research like this to understand and document the unique health risks that wildland firefighters experience. This ANONYMOUS study was developed at the University of Montana by a wildland firefighter to improve wildland firefighters’ health and safety. It is being funded by the Fallen Firefighter Foundation.
As a token of appreciation for participating in this study, the first 600 participants will be offered a $5 Amazon.com gift card code, provided by the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation. The success of this study depends on participation.
