The Backroom Crew

This is a place where we can sit down, put our feet up and chill. Where the Boys and Girls can just be themselves. The Back Room or what most firefighters call a ''day room or rec room'' is the social point of every firehouse.

Hey im in spokane i just sent you an friend request with some info I can work with you as a CISM member if your department wants you can pass it on to them as well

No he wasn't FD. He was retired Navy and a retired Sheriff's deputy. He was a very close family friend for over 30 years. I loved him like a Dad. My FD is working on getting me help but that takes time so right now I find myself stuck.

When you respond to those calls they are always tough on you. I went to one a couple of years ago when my childhood friend and Best Man at my wedding, daughter was stricken with the H1N1 flu. On my arrival to their home, his Mom was there calling me by name (which is hard to ignore) to save her but she was already in cardiac arrest for some time. This is one of the most toughest calls that Ive ever done in my 39 years. My suggestion to you is get back up on your feet and continue serving. If this is bothering you greatly, by all means sit down with your local Critical Incident Stress Team. I sent you a firend request if you want to talk more in a non-public setting.

Joel was this guy in the department too? If so get back on the truck and be the best you can be in honor and memory of him. Kinda cheesy I know but I've never been in that position.

OK so I find my self in a very hard spot. I was on a call a few days ago it was a man that I have known for over 20 years he was like a Dad to me. Now I find after 15 years in the fire service its really hard for me to get back on the truck I don't know what to do please help
