There is a heartbreaking epidemic taking place among our community of emergency responders.  Too many men and women who are called to serve end up moving through their days in the pain of stress and trauma injury.


The consequences can be devastating for our responders and the communities they serve.  The need for evidence-based skills development to meet the complex occupational stress and trauma challenges emergency responders face every day is paramount.


It’s time to fight back.


It’s time to lead forward.


It’s time to train knowledge and skills that provide hope for recovery, resilience and post traumatic growth.
