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.
Our inaugural First Responder Wellness Week, which ran from March 27-31, was designed to provide resources, support and community to help public safety personnel better understand the mental and physical health risks that come with the job. Every day, we tackled a different issue impacting the health of first responders, including nutrition, sleep hygiene, mental well-being and healthy coping strategies.
Below, we have rounded up the top #FirstResponderWellnessWeek social media posts from police, fire and EMS agencies nationwide. These agencies fully embraced Wellness Week to ensure their employees are physically and mentally fit.
