ABSTRACT

Firefighters witness the death of their colleagues relatively more often than other occupations, and tend to be exposed frequently to life-threatening environments. This study aims to build up the theoretical foundation on leisure activities and post-traumatic stress among firefighters, construct an analytic framework based on the review of the relevant literature, and then analyze the firefighter's awareness survey data to find out the influence factors as to leisure activites among firefighters in alleviating post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The findings based on standardized regression coefficients suggest physical leisure as the most influential factor alleviating PTSD, followed by relaxational leisure, recreational leisure, and intelligent leisure. However, psychological leisure turns out to be statistically insignificant.
