National Fire Academy
Munding, Howard M.
"The members of the Peoria Fire Department have been in situations without police support where violence erupted and our members were injured. It is estimated that nationally there are 700,000 assaults on paramedics and EMTs [emergency medical technician] on an annual basis. The purpose of this applied research project is to identify what approaches relating to the emerging issue of violence against firefighters to include self defense and/or defensive tactics that may be available to protect our members from injuries as a result of violent patients or bystanders."

This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
