Five firefighters were continuously monitored during at least 2 hours while performing a live-fire drill. Environmental data was also collected. They were subjected to high temperatures inside a house, leading to a big effort from the firefighters. The following picture shows the firefighters inside the house with an ambient temperature of 60ºC degrees. This drill objective was
