New Free ‘Neural-Based Learning for Fire Fighters’ Program Available
July 7, 2014
The Firefighters Support Foundation (FSF) has released Neural-Based Learning for Fire Fighters, a unique training program that details several techniques based on advances in neuroscience that can immediately enhance a firefighter’s performance under extreme stress.
The presenter is Marcus Wynne, a prominent training designer for high-stress occupations. He is a military veteran and a federal law enforcement veteran who served with the Federal Air Marshal Program. He has taught at hundreds of law enforcement and military academies and his work has been adopted at the national level in South Africa, Sweden, and Norway. He continues his research in consultation with DARPA, NASA, Naval Research, and other cutting-edge military research institutions in the U.S. and abroad.
The 36-minute video demonstrates five techniques in real time: increasing peripheral vision, using kinesthetic awareness to improve performance, visualization skills, mistake mitigation, and stress breathing (“reset breathing”). Each of these techniques can be used by the viewer immediately after watching the program.
This program is free to all members of public safety and emergency management agencies. Go to www.ffsupport.org to download your copy.
