Right out of the gate, a career in first response is extremely demanding. Law enforcement, firefighting, EMT, and military training often simulates the emergency situations servicepeople will be running towards, prioritizing high-risk decision making and strenuous physical demands. Springing into CPR, leaping from windows, and hand-to-hand takedowns name just a few of the feats first responders must prepare for, each with its own potential for impact.
The training doesn’t stop at the academy either, staying on top of the game could mean the difference between life and death, and the constant impact of consistent training can seriously add up without the proper equipment.
Building Skills to Fall Back On
First response is a skill, and like any skill, it only gets better through muscle memory developed over repetitive practice. Replicating and repeating crucial situations in controlled environments like obstacle courses help instructors develop such skills, activity that often puts practicing first responders at the mercy of the ground.
Without floor padding trainees can trust, the resulting apprehensiveness towards falling may leave them less prepared for the real thing. Not only does insufficient equipment affect fresh recruits, but even seasoned servicepeople who lack the well-maintained confidence to hit the deck may be rusty when life-threatening situations arise.
