Fire and EMS personnel are often the first on the scene to respond to a traumatic event. They’re also three times more likely to die by suicide than they are in the line of duty. That’s why it’s critical they have the skills they need to support themselves and their colleagues through an emotional crisis in the immediate aftermath of an emergency.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, March 27 at 4:00 p.m. ET, our director of public education, Bryan Gibb, will be going LIVE to talk all about our new Mental Health First Aid for Fire/EMS module!
During this Facebook LIVE, Bryan will provide you with:
- An overview of the Fire/EMS module.
- Insight into how the module was developed.
If you haven’t already, join the Mental Health First Aid USA Instructors Facebook page. To join the discussion, visit this same page tomorrow a few minutes before 4:00 p.m. ET.
If you have questions that you’d like to be answered during this LIVE session, send them ahead of time to ALGEE@TheNationalCouncil.org.
