We recently added the 10-33 Foundation’s Pre-Incident Stress Awareness Training to our CIT Academy. It immediately became one of the most favored and well- received presentations. I have since had the Foundation return for two more Academies and the presentation keeps improving because they earnestly strive to provide relevant and useful information to first responders that might ultimately help save their lives. Based on the feedback of over 150 officers they trained in our department over the past two years, I know the 10-33 Foundation is positively impacting the Law Enforcement community. I cannot adequately express my gratitude for all they do.

Firefighters and EMS responders need effective tools to help them deal with the inevitable stressors of the job. I've seen too many of my fire service brothers and sisters suffer from ruined marriages, shortened careers or worse yet suicide, because we were forced to internalize the effects of the many tragedies we respond to each year. The 10-33 Foundation has voluntarily given presentations to my firefighter training classes over the past few years. The positive feedback from the students has been outstanding. Thanks to the 10-33 Foundation, these future emergency responders will not be forced to "suck it up" and take their chances on finally venting in a manner that could have lifelong tragic consequences.

We have been utilizing the services of the 10-33 Foundation for stress management training and debriefings when outside assistance is needed. This training includes providing information to all new recruits to give them a tool to work with at the beginning of their fire careers. Providing valuable information before and during difficult times has the potential to limit or reduce the tragic consequences that our firefighters face on the job, within their family life and the way they interact with their communities in the future. The services provided by the 10-33 Foundation have been invaluable to our organization.

As the President of the State Capital Area Fire Fighter Associations, I would like to thank the 10-33 Foundation for coming to our 32nd Annual Fire School. I was glad that I had the opportunity to sit through your presentation and look forward to your return next year. I will do my best to promote your presentation because I felt it was very helpful.
