Explains the whats and whys of mental performance, and guides through a series of exercises to achieve the same level of peak mental performance as top athletes. Teaches how to focus and concentrate (develop mental muscle) so that as one trains in the mechanical and physical tasks of the job, one also prepares mentally and is then prepared to react correctly when needing to make the right split-second decision in an emergency. M.A.P. emphasizes the importance of being prepared, paying attention all the time, and planning to succeed (rather than planning to fail) no matter how routine the task or stressful the situation. M.A.P. is a strategy to enhance all areas of work: getting along with others, teaching a class, giving a speech, handling disciplinary matters, improving performance in emergency situations, setting goals, etc.

 

Firefighters Bookstore Item # 1801

Firefighting is often portrayed as an endeavor whose success depends primarily on the physical abilities of firefighters and their equipment. However, firefighting also has a mental aspect, as discussed in Mental Aspects of Fire Performance, 2nd Ed. The text focuses on the importance of the mental approach that firefighters take to firefighting situations and disciplines, including:

firefighting operations, giving public speeches, and handling disciplinary matters, to name a few.

Essential Guidance

Firefighting can be a mentally draining occupation for firefighters who are not prepared to meet the psychological demands of their position. This is where Mental Aspects of Performance, 2nd Ed., can help. When firefighters learn to approach their duties in a way that prepares for them for mental demands of the work, they often become more effective at meeting the physical demands of their work. You prepare for your firefighting job physically; why not prepare for it mentally, too?

Rescue Operations

Rescue operations are some of the most mentally taxing situations for firefighters. Split second decisions that could result in life or death must often be made, and the operation itself can involve a high degree of psychological stress. When you approach the operation from a perspective of mental clarity, you can make insightful decisions that are invaluable to the rescue mission. Studying the chapters in Mental Aspects of Performance, 2nd Ed., helps you accomplish this.
