Cold Weather Emergency Incident Rehabilitation - The Need for Rehab

This is part one of a four part series on the topic of Emergency Incident Rehabilitation. In this segment we'll discuss the need for rehab at all situations - truly a "sector for all seasons". Joining me for this series is Dr. Jeremy Cushman, Medical Director for Monroe County, NY.

In part two we'll discuss special logistical considerations, part three covers the importance of "Pre-Hab" and physical fitness. 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.
