There is no doubt that if you have lost a firefighter in the line of duty, the holidays can be an especially challenging time of year. The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation (NFFF) understands. And while we can’t change the facts, what we can do is offer some simple strategies that might help make the holiday season just a little bit easier for you to navigate.
That’s why we have created the NFFF Holiday Season Toolkit—a supportive resource focused on fellowship, self-care, and giving back during the holidays. It includes a variety of idea-starters and suggestions to offer fire hero families a positive focus, ranging from honoring your hero by doing good for others—to finding quiet opportunities to take care of yourself today and through the holiday season.
Please read through these ideas and try out those that appeal to you or that might provide engagement for your family, friends, and/or others in your community.
And by all means, please share your thoughts and ideas about what may have helped, so that others can try these strategies, too. We are always just a click away on our private Facebook page.
