There is a Human Behind Every First Responder's Badge.

Repeated exposure to traumatic events and the unchecked physiological tolls of the job negatively impact those wearing the badge and can be debilitating, or even deadly …

life expectancy
The life expectancy of First Responders is 20 years less than average.
heart disease
Police ages 55-60 have a 56% chance of dying from a heart attack – 35x more than average.
death
First Responders are more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty.
PTSD
20 -25% of all First Responders experience Post-Traumatic Stress.
family
The impact of a First Responder’s job affects their entire family.

… but we believe this must change and are collaborating to deliver critical resources that will improve the lives of First Responders.
