Emergency services is a unique and rewarding profession, but it can burn you out if you let it. As first responders, we can be exposed to more intense stressful situations in one week than the general public will experience in a lifetime. Up to now, the emphasis has been on critical incident stress interventions after the fact. They are valuable, and should be used when necessary. We also need to develop psychological resiliency before the fact, to lessen the impact of critical incident stress, and bounce back after those difficult calls, and life in general.
