Firefighter and Emergency Medical Services Ergonomics Curriculum


The purpose of the instructor’s guide is to provide a road map for using the curriculum effectively. We use the term “instructor” broadly here. While teaching skills and experience are helpful, a person who is familiar with firefighting and/or EMS work and spends sufficient time becoming familiar with the materials should be able to make good use of the curriculum. This guide offers general information concerning the training philosophy behind the curriculum and specific guidance on how to use the modules.
