First Responder Wellness Week

Every day, around the clock, our nation’s first responders give it their all. The job is uniquely rewarding. It’s also uniquely challenging, with physical, mental and emotional impacts.

First Responder Wellness Week is dedicated to providing resources, support and community to help public safety personnel better understand the mental and physical health risks that come with the job.

Join Lexipol, EMS1 and our partners from March 25-March 29, 2024, to focus on your health and promote the wellness of your personnel. Each day we’ll focus on a different theme, providing videos, webinars, articles, podcasts, shareable resources and more.
