Over recent years, positive trends have addressed the importance of physical fitness, which is being included as part of the firefighter’s training programs held today. However, mindful wellness is another issue that still continues to remain outstanding.
Many who loyally serve in this field (both career or voluntary), feel the ongoing effects of job-related stress. This leads to unhealthy behaviors and wellness issues which only compounds the problems we face. There has been ample clinical evidence proving if such wellness issues continue to go untreated, related problems of cardiovascular issues, post-traumatic stress disorders (PTSD), drug or alcohol issues, depression, obesity, back problems and diabetes (to name a few) continue to rise. This has already led too many of our beloveds in this field to face early retirement, injuries, divorce, suicides and firefighters partaking in risky behaviors.
There is no possible way to predict what will or won’t affect you or your coworkers in this field. There may be related calls you will face…such as an injury/death of a child mirroring the age of your own or that of an extended family member. A procedure that has been well rehearsed over the years, this time unfolding in an outcome less than desired/turns fatal. Some partake in a rescue where bonding with the victim(s) does not result in a happy ending. A "routine" call ends up unwittingly having a negative effect on you or your coworkers. The lists of examples go on. It does not have to be a high-profile call nor the above examples mentioned. Any call at any time can sneak up and have a powerful impact on you or your coworkers.
All the above, are reasons enough as to why we need to find modalities which will satisfy all interests, needs and belief systems to ensure help is not only available when problems arise, but introduces preventative methods; ensuring you and your crew will remain balanced, healthy and safe. The more choices for such services offered, increases the chances your men and women will wish to seek out such opportunities for help which feels in alignment and comfortable with them (as all needs varies).
