Abstract

Heart rate monitoring of the firefighters have begun to be used for job stress level assessment or firefighting training. However, resilience assessment and heart rate variability monitoring is not widely utilized on firefighters with limited feedback available through wearables. This paper presents an initial exploratory study that considers heart rate responses from firefighters in real life like emergency scenarios.
