Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehab - "Pre-Habilitation"

This is part three of a four part series on the topic of Emergency Incident Rehabilitation. In this segment we'll discuss the importance of "pre-hab" and physical fitness. Joining me for this series is Dr. Jeremy Cushman, Medical Director for Monroe County, NY.

In part one we reviewed the need for rehab, in part two we discussed special logistical considerations.  Changing weather conditions and the use of Incident Action Planning in relation to rehabilitation operations are covered in part four. 

Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehabilitation was produced for emergency responders off all disciplines. Health care professionals who may treat responders in the hospital environment  will also benefit from this background information. For more on cold weather emergencies, click here.
