Fire Note 81: This Fire Note focuses on two studies investigating the role of prescribing fluids before firefighters deploy to the fire ground and the prescription of fluids during their fire ground shift. The effect of these hydration strategies on firefighters' physiology and productivity when working to curtail the spread of bushfires is outlined and discussed.

This Fire Note is part of the Bushfire CRC Firefighter health and safety research project.
