Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance is committed to always remember our brothers and sisters, in the fire and EMS service who took their lives.
On May 17-21, 2017, FBHA is hosting our third annual weekend retreat, Those Left Behind, in Gatlinburg, TN. This event is for families of firefighters and EMS that have died by completing suicide.
On May 19, 2017, at 9:00 pm (your local time zone) in recognition of Mental Health Awareness month, we are asking fire and EMS organizations to place a rig(s) on their driveway and turn on their emergency lights for one minute to express support for all the families that have suffered a loss. Community members are welcome to join at their local participating location or stand in their own driveway and light a candle to remember a loved one.
Show them that “We Remember”.
We ask that you take photos or video and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org to show all the families your support!
Ret. Captain Jeff Dill
