This training is comprised of both classroom and live scenarios. This includes wearing turnout gear, watching a live burn training scenario, visiting fire stations, and interacting with firefighters.

Reviews of the Program

This was one of the most profound experiences and immersion that I have ever had. This gave me brand new and significant Insight on the experiences of fireman and what they battle on a daily basis.

The hands on experience was very eye-opening. The presenters were engaging. The information was presented in a concise way and the lingo handout was helpful. The fact that lunch was provided was very generous. Plenty of bathroom and water breaks.

The opportunity and time to interact with many firefighters, welcoming all questions and feedback. The passion was palpable and contagious.

All of the firefighters were incredibly welcoming, passionate, and knowledgeable. You can tell that everyone is invested in this cause & truly wants to better mental wellness for firefighters & break the barriers & stigma between first responders & mental health. The course also offers more experiences, knowledge, and examples than someone can get from books or videos on the internet. Super amazing!

It was incredibly heartfelt, authentic, and well-researched.

I loved that we got to experience the simulation and wear the gear. I also really enjoyed the visit to the fire station.

The two day event was excellent The training enhanced my knowledge about First Responders. Excellent event! Awesome experience!

I really appreciated the vulnerability of personal accounts. Learning the lingo & the live simulations really gave a different perspective into a “day in the life.” This is valuable information for a clinician to know & removes some the assumptions that can block the process.
