When someone asks me what the main mission is here at FirefighterWife.com my answer is short and sweet. Less Divorce. Stronger Fire Wives. Marriage isn’t easy. Throw in the complications of the fire life and it sometimes feels impossible. Long hours at the job. A “second family”. Stressful calls. Sleepless nights. PTSD. Interrupted communications. Your schedule not matching the rest of the worlds. Missed holidays. The list goes on.
We are here to Rescue and Strengthen Fire Marriages Here are some resources to help you work through those tough spots. Having been divorced once, it is something I NEVER recommend to anyone without first fighting like mad to save your marriage.
To glorify God in the fire service by building relationships that turn the hearts and minds of first responders to Christ (Philippians 2:11), equipping them to serve Him (Ephesians 4:12).
To encourage one another to share the vision with the fire service community through Witnessing, Praying, Teaching the Word, and Walking worthy.
Firefighter Behavior Health Alliance
We are a newly formed non profit organization set out to educate senior fire officers, firefighters, EMS and supporting personnel about behavior health and mental stressors that your type of job can have and the consequences of not recognizing them. It can take a serious toll on your work, family and social life. A large area of focus will be rising number of firefighter suicides and bringing this awareness to the forefront. Website | Facebook
