    Because WE care about you 

    You don’t have to do this alone 

     Many of us have been through similar situations 

    It's more than just being tough 

    if you not “tough” its ok 

 

Where do you start 

    Find someone you know love and trust 

    don’t hold it in.  talk to someone 

    Find a counselor.  Maybe EAP, But google is where I started 

    Realize that there is more than just you!

    find something other than fire 

    

 

We are our Brothers and sisters keeper..   

 

Get to know your people 

Invest in them by knowing them 

Ask questions 

Spend time off duty 

Pay attention
