Fatigue among EMERCOM operators is condition that threatens timely and efficient work at emergency facilities. A double forward and back translation of Fatigue Assessment Scale (FAS) and Checklist Individual Strength (CIS 8) was performed. Methods. We measured a subjective level of fatigue among 252 EMERCOM operators aged 24–47 years including males and females and the psychometric qualities of the scales. Objective psychological assessment of operator activity was performed using test «Smile». Results. Scales FAS and CIS 8 demonstrated satisfactory internal consistency (Cronbachs alpha 0,84 and 0,85 respectively) and were unidimensional. After the level of fatigue was determined, operators were divided into two groups due to the presence of fatigue. Conclusion. The level of fatigue was correlated to the level of daytime sleepiness, there were not any correlations to night sleep quality. The error levels were significantly higher in the hardest type of the test among operators with fatigue.
