The current study aimed to discover the coping strategies used by rescuers in Palestinian emergency centers, as well as the extent to which the two variables of coping strategies and occupational hardiness could predict the quality of spiritual life among rescuers, and to discover differences in the spiritual quality of life, coping strategies, and occupational hardiness based on years of experience. The study's sample consisted of (159) male and female rescuers from various West Bank rescue and emergency centers. They were chosen using the simple random sample method. The study's findings revealed that positive re-evaluation and planning were among the paramedics' coping strategies. The study's findings also revealed that coping strategies and occupational hardiness were statistically significant predictors of the spiritual quality of life. The study also concluded that there were differences in coping strategies and spiritual quality of life that can be attributed to years of experience; however, there were no differences in occupational hardiness among rescuers that can be attributed to years of experience.
