Training First Responders in Resilience to Improve Mental Health – December 4, 2019

Firefighters miraculously saved Healdsburg and Windsor from the Kincade Fire. While they are always there to help prevent the loss of life, who is there to protect them?

Firefighters and first responders are more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty. North Bay Paramedic, Susan Farren, wants this to change. That’s why she founded a training program, called First Responder Resilience Incorporated. KRCB’s Adia White talked with Farren about why she believes mental health training is imperative to saving first responder’s lives.

The National Alliance on Metal Illness North Bay suicide prevention hotline is 855-587-6373. For more information on First Responder Resilience visit
