Crisis Intervention

The National Fallen Firefighters Foundation provides ongoing support programs for family members of firefighters who die in the line of duty. However, we do not provide crisis services.

It is important, especially right now while everyone is under a considerable amount of extra stress, to know how to access crisis intervention, should you need immediate help. Just like calling 911 for a medical emergency, there is good help available for psychological and emotional crisis points. Please keep this information handy in case you or someone you know should need it.
