The biggest obstacle with an Emergency Service Worker is for them to admit they are having problems.
They are trained to handle any situation and to block their personal fears and trauma when on the job.
The "Mask" they continually wear is the greatest hurdle to overcome and to speak up.......I'm Not Ok, are the three hardest words for some to say.
To ask for help is a sign of strength Not weakness.

REMINDER - When lighting a fire outside of the bushfire season whether you rent, lease or own the property it's your responsibility to notify your neighbours and local Fire Control Centre. A couple of quick calls can save your local RFS brigade having to turn out unnecessarily and eases the concerns of your neighbours.
