Firefighters and EMS providers routinely face situations that can have a significant impact on their mental health and wellbeing. Understanding the challenges and learning mitigation and coping mechanisms for themselves and their fellow department members is critical to preventing tragic outcomes.

Capturing the Load is a five-module online mental health education course that covers cumulative stress, vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, post-traumatic stress, and the stress continuum. This course equips and empowers participants with the knowledge and resources to have conversations with their fellow first responders and their loved ones to get any support they need to have a long and healthy volunteer career.

On the Job and Off is an online platform dedicated to building more resilient first responders. Capturing the Load is presented by On the Job and Off CEO and lead instructor Ali Rothrock. In addition to her work in mental health education, Rothrock is a firefighter, EMT, and Certified Trauma Responder. She is also a certified QPR Suicide Prevention Instructor and a member of the Montgomery County (PA) Critical Incident Stress Management Team.
