A recent study has shown police officers and firefighters are more likely to die by suicide than in the line of duty.
In 2017, there were at least 103 firefighter suicides and 140 police officer suicides. In contrast, 93 firefighters and 129 police officers died in the line of duty.
We are walking for every first responder who has died by suicide, we are walking in hopes that we can save just one, we are walking to bring a voice to those who do not have a voice . . .
We ask that each department, each firefighter, EMS or law enforcement officer donate to help us reach our team goal . . . come out and walk in memory of someone we could not save . . . we are our brother’s keeper!
Help us help each other.
