About this event


First Responders are the first to arrive and help at emergency scenes, which can include car accidents, fires, medical emergencies, natural disasters and even terrorist attacks. They witness highly stressful and traumatic events every day.

Constant exposure to these events can lead to emotional exhaustion, low productivity, and sometimes hopelessness. You feel drained, tapped out, and you have little or no energy to answer the call to help others. Usually after a little break we revive and step back up to the plate. What happens however, when these feelings don’t pass – going beyond fatigue and turning into something much worse, like apathy? This could spell trouble for first responders. Professions like law enforcement, corrections, and fire rescue come with a heightened level of stress and exposure to traumatic events. Such stress and trauma can lead to emotional exhaustion, compassion fatigue, low job satisfaction, burnout, PTSD, and in some cases suicide.

This 8 Hour Class is designed to help First Responders acquire the knowledge and skills necessary to maximize efficiency, effectiveness, and potential while minimizing stress, compassion fatigue, and burnout.
