    Abstract

    The need for validation of a physical work performance evaluation for incumbent firefighters is discussed. Cardiorespiratory fitness is well accepted as a critical requisite to the health, safety, and performance evaluation of firefighters. The validation of job-specific physical work performance represents the critical essential functions the firefighters must be able to perform in their career. It estimates the strength of the physiologic correlates of the firefighters based on many eligibility criteria.
