Posted by Public Safety Group on 1/30/19 9:39 PM


The Public Safety Group, a global leader in EMS and Fire educational materials and services, has partnered with Kognito, a leader in evidence-based health simulations to bring you First Responder Support & Resilience.

This unique learning experience is centered on interactive simulations that enable students and experienced professionals to practice talking with other first responders who are going through challenging times.

Did you know? 

First responders are 5 times more likely to experience PTSD and depression than civilians. In fact, more fire fighters and police officers have died from suicide than in the line of duty in recent years, yet little has been done to support this high-risk population.*

In each of the five interactive and simulated role-play conversations in the First Responder Support & Resilience course, you will:

  • Kognito_CollageSpeak with fully animated and emotionally responsive virtual peers.

  • Learn how to approach checking in with peers you’re concerned about, demonstrate compassion, help them problem-solve, and if necessary, connect them to additional help.

  • Get pointers along the way and, at the end, you’ll have the chance to review how you did and reflect on how you might have handled things differently.


Let’s face it, these types of conversations are never easy. As with most high-intensity, low-frequency events, the time that we take to practice and train for these difficult situations allows us to be ready when it really counts. First Responder Support & Resilience allows you to practice and learn from these conversations in a safe environment. So, if one of your colleagues is struggling with psychological distress, substance abuse, relationship problems, or other common stressors, you’ll know what to say.
