New PSA With Burn-Injured Firefighters Describes What Peer Support Means to Them
The healing journey of a burn injured firefighter can have its unique challenges. We understand how the healing paths of the firefighter survivor and their family can be vastly different.
The firefighter survivor often hopes to return to the profession where the burn injury occurred, while family members may struggle with the fear of loss. The physical recovery is challenging, but psychological recovery can be overwhelming.
Watch personal testimonials from our new PSA with real burn-injured firefighters and others who describe what peer support means to them:
