This research is examining the effect of working on-call on the sleep and physiological stress of fire and emergency service workers. Male fire and emergency service workers aged 18-75 are being recruited for the study. Sleep, wake and work patterns will be recorded during a two-week period, as well saliva samples. The study seeks to understand what happens to a person’s physiology when an emergency call occurs overnight, and what happens on nights when an individual is on-call, but no call occurs.
