A Comprehensive Approach
For First Responders, by First Responders
Research shows that without intervention first responders have life expectancies of 15 years less than civilians. They have higher probabilities of divorce, addiction, suicide, stroke, and cancer than the very people they serve.
It’s time to turn these statistics around.
The impacts of being exposed to a career of stress and trauma effect every system of the body; physical, psychological, neurological, emotional and relational. Until now, traditional care for first responders has focused on forms of talk therapy, peer counseling, and debriefings. Although these things are great, they are simply not enough.
First Responders Resiliency, Inc. addresses every component of the issues effecting first responders with our unique, multi-faceted approach of implementing education, skills, techniques and tools that have profound impacts on stress reduction and management, thus improving the professional and personal lives of those that serve.

2. The ability of a substance or object to spring back into shape; elasticity.
