Rescuers jobs are important because these are related with own and others lives. The present study was conducted to study that how burnout levels are related with rescuers and their jobs? Copenhagen Burnout Inventory, Self-efficacy scale and the satisfaction with life scale were administered to 120 male rescuers working in a government department serving against various positions. It was found that self-efficacy was significantly correlated with life satisfaction (r= .45, p< .01) among rescuers. Moreover it was found that self-efficacy and life satisfaction were negatively correlated with burnout (r= -.71, p< .01), (r= -.56, p< .01). Some important demographic findings regarding age, assignment and education also emerged. Cross-cultural studies recommended.
