ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the presence of violence in fire departments in the U.S. The idea of being the victim or perpetrator of such violence creates a dilemma for most fire service personnel. Such a situation contradicts the fire service community's expectation that firefighters are supposed to be rescuers and helpers, not the inflictors or sufferers of violence. Domestic violence in the workplace refers to intimate-partner violence, a subtype of domestic violence. Forms of intimate-partner violence include battering, abuse or assaultive behavior on a person with whom the perpetrator is involved in an intimate relationship.
