This month we will have Dr. Frank Gallo; PHD from the Brattleboro Retreat located in Brattleboro, Vermont to discuss his "Uniformed Services Program" for firefighters, police officers, EMT's and military personnel who are in need of help.

Frank is a former SRT police officer so he understands our daily routines / stressors. Alot of fire service leaders do not know about the wonderful things the Brattleboro Retreat has to offer our servicemen and women. As you know our profession comes with alot of death and destruction. Our mind can only file away so much of the horrific images we see before it starts to effect us both personally and professionally. The Brattleboro Retreat offers a specific "Uniformed Services Program" to cope with the stress, depression, alcohol and drug abuse and the dark side of firefighter suicide.  This will be a great show to discuss how our "traditional manly" exterior is often a false facade for a hurting brother or sister on the inside.  For more information about the USP program you can click here.
