First Responders/Public Safety
Responding to the challenge is the challenge. This is the daily task of our firefighters, E.M.T.’s and police officers. The stakes are usually as high as the adrenaline that surges through them on a regular basis. Despite the stressors to their bodies and minds, they are called upon to respond with a cool head, steady nerves, integrity, and compassion. Our hat’s off to them. That’s not easy.
This is another of our original decks written for and with the help of our local first responders. Use it alone to practice working through the challenges by learning to apply the Skills & Attitudes to the challenges presented and those you may have experienced. Use it with your team to build a resilient and supportive community. Train future first responders for the challenges ahead. And let’s not forget families. Use them in support groups. The demands on our first responders create family stressors that just may benefit from the Skills & Attitudes of resilience.
