The Tired Fire/Medic posted a great video on his blog about Firefighters coping with Suicide and the aftermath of suicide. I wanted to reblog it over here but my computer screwed up on me and it reblogged to my personal site instead…. And, of course, now where it said “reblog” at the top of the post earlier, it now says “reblogged” and there’s no option to reblog elsewhere. I did try to go into the blog on my personal site to see if I could reblog from there…. No go.
Anyhow, here’s the link to the original blog as well as the youtube link. Make sure you watch all the way to the end to see “What to Watch for” Most important thing is to talk about it…. Don’t bottle up what your feeling. And if you see that someone is (or you think someone is) having difficulties or problems… Offer to help, to listen, to be there — Not just once but several times.
