  1. Thank you for your organization. My brother has served a very large southwest city for the last 23 years as a firefighter, paramedic, dive team member, and haz mat. He has ptsd. Says he just doesn’t sleep, “too many dead kids” in his head. He has been awarded firefighter of the year but the job has cost him a marriage and most of his joints. They need you guys and we need to focus on the mental health of those who help young guys starting out.
