Most Stressful Jobs of 2014

Lafayette Professional Firefighters extend our complete respect to the Military for protecting our great nation!

1. Enlisted Military

2. Military General

3. Firefighter

Firefighter is ranked third among the CareerCast.com most stressful Jobs Rated report of 2014. Only enlisted military personnel and military general scored higher in a measurement of 11 stress factors, including whether your life and the life of others is at risk.

The personal dangers military personnel and firefighters face as part of their work is evident. But both are responsible for the safety of their peers as well, as Keyworth explains. We operate in team environment. No one goes in by [himself or herself], he says. Go in as team, go out as a team.

Firefighters and soldiers also fill vital functions to society, as their work ensures the safety of entire communities.
