I am currently working on my final senior project/ thesis and wanted to get in contact with you to ask about your experience working with the fire department and see if you could possibly provide me with more insight and stats that you recorded while working
with the department and FMS.
I am an Athletic Trainer and my husband is a firefighter in Joplin, MO. I have personally seen the disparity of care, lack of injury prevention strategies, and lack of fitness initiatives for their firefighters. I am currently finishing up my masters and I was wanting to create a possible business plan for a local fire department that included injury prevention, performance enhancement, and injury rehabilitation based on movement principles. I am unsure as to where to start and was wondering if you have some suggestions or literature I can read to help me in this endeavor.
