Are you a good listener? Are you looking for a way to “pay it forward” by helping others deal with grief and loss?
If so, you might want to consider becoming a member of the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Fire Hero Family Peer Support Network. The NFFF has a 1-day training class to prepare people for this role, and we recently produced a 30-minute video that gives an overview of the material covered in the training. If you are curious about the class, or if you are just looking for some skills to help you support friends and family in difficult times, please contact Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org for access to the video and to be added to the list for the next 1-day class.
The Fire Hero Family Programs team is here for you. While we are adapting to these new circumstances, we are researching ways to bring resources, workshops, and meetings to you virtually. In the coming weeks, we will provide resources and information to help you stay connected.
