Fire Hero Teens

Unlock a world of connection and understanding for adolescents with Fire Hero Teens !

Fire Hero Teens

In today’s fast-paced world where community support for this age group may be lacking, we provide a safe and empowering space for adolescents to connect, share, and thrive. Fire Hero Teens, our support group just for adolescents ages 13 -17, meets on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7:00 pm (ET) via Zoom.

Since April 2020, virtual support groups offered through the NFFF have been extremely beneficial to Fire Hero families as a way to provide grief education, facilitated discussion, peer to peer support, and ongoing support for people who have experienced trauma or grief due to the loss of a loved one.  Fire Hero Family parents have frequently raised the need for adolescent support groups.

Tailoring support to your needs – our groups can be individualized based on demand, ensuring that your teen connects with peers of similar age for a more personalized and relatable experience.

Fire Hero Teens is a virtual Zoom gathering for children, stepchildren, and siblings of firefighters honored or approved to be honored at the National Fallen Firefighters Memorial in Emmitsburg, Maryland. All eligible teens (ages 13-17) are encouraged to participate!
