Todays fireground has brought new obstacles to the fire service. Gang violence, shootings, faster cars that provide minimal protection to occupants, weak building construction, terrorism, hazardous material. America's fire service responds to over 2-million emergency calls per year, the highest of all industrialized nations.
The effects on firefighters caught has fire service off guard. We were no prepared for increased cancer rates, PTSD is rampant among ranks, major fireground injuries from roofs collapsing, to flashovers and suicides.
Firefighters Down is a way to show support for directly affected and injured firefighters with healing therapies and family support.
