... lence of stress in a group of military firefighters in the municipality of Ponta Porã, in the state of Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. Sociodemographic questionnaires were used to characterize the studied population and Lipp's Stress Symptoms Inventory for Adults, which investigates the prevalence of stress and its phases. In total, 33 bombers involved in the study, 3 of which were identified in the resistance phase, in which the individual comes into contact with the stressor, but still remains in some coping attitude, still suggesting a behavior to overcome the stressor object contact.
