We Remember – Mental Health Awareness 2019
Mental Health is a major concern in the fire service. As part of continuing efforts to raise awareness, the Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance has encouraged fire departments across the nation to place their rigs outside their respective stations and turn on their emergency lights for one minute this Friday night, or to stand in their respective driveways with a lit candle at 2100hrs to remember those who have taken their own lives.
Brooke Volunteer Fire Department encourages everyone, both firefighters and lay citizens, to do their part to maintain good mental health. If suicide is on your mind, do not be afraid to call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
