My Dept. just had A fatal last night. I was just wondering how other dept's handle these types of calls in terms of helping FF's get through the mental "stuff" that comes along with this type of call.

My first fatal was a car accident and three teens around my age died, that was 2yrs ago. We had a circle talk about it, everyone shared their feelings about it. I learned alot about how people felt and I guess it worked for some, but not me. I just had to work through it and stop the faces from showing up everytime I closed my eyes. Sort of shock theropy I think, but I am good now and have had other fatals since. I am good now, but still would rather not see it. Doing my job is all I can do, and I will.
