5 Bugles 4 Change

As Founder of Firefighter Behavioral Health Alliance (FBHA) it is my goal to encourage Fire Chiefs across the world to promote and provide behavioral health training to the members of their departments. Over this past year I have met hundreds of firefighters, officers and family members whose stories about their mental health needs have been very inspiring. Yet, to educate my brothers and sisters about behavioral health and to prevent firefighter suicides, is a difficult job to do all by myself.  Therefore, I ask every Fire Chief to join me by pledging your dedication to train your department about behavioral health.  When you submit your name below we will send you a certificate showing your support!

Thank you,

Jeffrey A. Dill
