Suicide Prevention: Supporting Those Who Serve

Over 100 firefighters and EMS providers die by suicide each year. September is National Suicide Prevention Month, and it is critical to make sure members of your department know that help is available if they need. The Share the Load program provides free resources including guides, videos, training, posters, and more that you can share in your department. Access resources. The Fire/EMS Helpline is always available at 1-888-731-FIRE (3473) for any member of the fire and emergency medical services and their families. Not sure what to say to someone in need?
