Hi I'm Jim; I just have a short but to the point of doing the job you love to do. To me it wasn't just a job it was something I always dreamed as any other kid and did. I was a Firefighter, EMS Provider; Also a First -Aid CPR Instructor for the Red Cross and The American Heart Ass. I had done this for seventeen out of twenty one years. Started out as just a firefighter and worked my way from there. The thing is from there I didn't care for myself as I should have and just made twenty six hours… Continue

Take care and hope you are doing well. Janice

James,

I saw that you started a group about PTSD. I also had job related PTSD and got help thru West Coast Post Trauma Retreat. (www.wcpr2001.org) Because I was helped so much thru WCPR and there doesnt seem to be much help for firefighters with PTSD, I decided to do what I can to help spread the word the firefighters do get PTSD. I also help at the WCPR retreats. Also, in June of this year I am climbing Kilimanjaro to raise money for WCPR. (www.climb4first.org) Good luck with your PTSD and if you need anything let me know.
