Our goal is to help the first responder and retirees regain control over their lives and either return to work with a new perspective on stress and coping, move on with their lives if that is a more appropriate decision, or simply enjoy retirement.
The mission of the First Responder Support Network (FRSN) is to provide educational treatment programs to promote recovery from stress and critical incidents experienced by first responders and their families.
Our goal is to provide first responders and their families tools to reduce the effects of traumatic stress. The key programs of FRSN are the 6-day residential treatment for first responders, also known as the West Coast Post-trauma Retreat (WCPR), and the 6-day program for significant others & spouses (SOS).
FRSN is a collaboration of first responder peers (included but not limited to police, fire, dispatch, and emergency medical services), SOS peers, culturally competent mental health clinicians, and chaplains. Our programs are successful because of dedicated volunteers and charitable contributions. We are committed to diversity and anti-racism in our work and offer an inclusive and safe space for every First Responder.
We encourage you to contact us if you or someone you know is in need of assistance, or if you want to help first responders and their families by becoming a volunteer or supporter!
