"In Their
Own Words"


A video series

This series of first responder vignettes portray the array of traumatic and work life stresses that affect firefighters, law enforcement professionals, dispatchers and family members. It reveals the impact that such stresses may have on themselves, their family members and their departments. 

 

This series creates an intimate awareness of how large and small events affect first responders.  In overcoming these events, we see their dedication, their coping strategies, and their resilience as they grow and thrive through adversity.

 

Each vignette shows a different dimension of the impact of trauma as they discuss events that would be distressing to almost everyone.
