Police, firefighters, and emergency medical services (EMS) personnel are first on the scene to face situations that are often unpredictable, challenging, and dangerous. This work can be strenuous and put first responders at increased risk of secondary or vicarious trauma due to repeated exposure to trauma stories, pain, and fear about whether the people they serve have survived. The resources in this bulletin can help disaster behavioral health professionals and first responders.
