First Responder Trauma Services (FRTS) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit public charity whose mission driven purpose is to serve those who spend their careers risking their lives for the safety and well-being of others. From the time a member of the public calls 911 for help, this population of employees and volunteers goes into action quickly to serve the public. Regardless of the time of day, these emergency response workers spend their time and talents serving the anonymous public on the worst days of their lives. FRTS stands ready to help these brave and caring women and men when they are experiencing their own worst days.


First Responder Trauma Services is dedicated to supporting the lives of professional and volunteer first responders and frontline workers, including 911 operators, firefighters, law enforcement officers, EMS pre-hospital transport personnel, emergency room staff, physicians, criminal justice service workers, park rangers, judicial district attorneys, coroners, and family members, by developing honest and empathetic peer support relationships across the first response agencies we serve.  


We strongly believe in the importance and efficacy of community outreach and have created a regional peer support team model, whereby active first responders and frontline workers receive specialized training to respond to fellow first responders and first response agencies in crisis 24/7 365.  

At FRTS, "We get it because we have been there and done that," with over 500 collective years of frontline response experience. FRTS clinicians "know how it feels, because we have felt the same way," and we can show responders what we have found to successfully maneuver through similar minefields and live an enriched life. With increasingly higher burnout, addiction, divorce and suicide rates, we as helpers and  community members need to provide more than empathy and understanding.


At FRTS, we make it COOL to get CARE!!
