We followed the Modified Canadian Aerobic Fitness Test's (mCAFT) protocol to obtain an estimated maximal oxygen consumption (V[O.sub.2-max] mL/kg/min) levels [10].
Zephyr BioHarness and its wireless Bluetooth application connected to our laptop were used to monitor, capture, and transmit firefighters' physiological responses including heart rate (in absolute, beats/minute; relative, percentage of maximum heart rate, terms) and respiratory rates (breaths/minute), both at 2.5-second interval during the simulated firefighting tasks and the mCAFT. The rating of perceived exertion (RPE) was also assessed after completing each of the simulated firefighting tasks using a modified 10-point Borg scale.
We assessed cardiorespiratory fitness levels by administering the mCAFT which is a submaximal test.
