    She really enjoys blogging and finding ways to help out at the local fire departments.

    The Year in Review on the Firefighter Netcast Show

    in Friends

    Join John and Rhett as we discuss the past (and first) year of Firefighter Netcast. Live December 30th at 9pm EST

    You are welcome to join the discussion as we discuss the past year including the good, the bad, and the ugly!

    Firefighter Netcast was born just over a year ago as an idea between the creators of Firefighter Netcast John Mitchell begin_of_the_skype_highlighting     end_of_the_skype_highlighting and Rhett Fleitz. What the hell were we thinking? Our first shows were nervous times for us. Now, we just take our laptops to the local bars and drink heavily...then we get on the air to bring you some fire service topics!

    Little did we know that we would be jet setting across the Nation (or half of it anyways), going to great cities, and meeting so many great people! Baltimore, Indianapolis, Baltimore again because we couldn't get enough, Chicago, and Emmitsburg...we had a blast at all of them.

    Along with our show, we also produce 3 other shows. In the past year, we have hosted or produced over 80 podcasts. That isn't too bad is it?

    We probably recorded several hundred hours of audio and only let the F bomb slip by once!

    Join us live on December 30th while we do a year in review and wrap up all the fun into one show!

    Firefighter Netcast Show with Jeff Dill

    in Friends

    “It’s good to be strong and it’s good to be courageous. But it’s also good to ask for help. “If I had a good friend who said, ‘you need to get some help,’ I would listen. I would hope somebody would do that.” Fire Chief Bob Khan, Phoenix Fire Department, which lost four firefighters in seven months to suicide.

    Whether we admit it or not, we are not immune to the effects of the unique stress we cope with each day as firefighters.

    Many times, we keep these stressors bottled up inside us without seeking help. Other times, when we do seek help, we have a difficult time trying to relate to counselors who have zero experience as a firefighter, and become frustrated, eventually abandoning outside help often critical to our well-being.

    Tonight, Firefighter Netcast introduces Jeff Dill, a Battalion Chief from suburban Chicago, who holds a Masters Degree in Counseling. Chief Dill has established CSSF, Counseling Services for Firefighters, which offers behavioral health support to firefighters; trains senior fire officers, and educates clinicians on the benefits of understanding the life and emotions- of firefighters.

    The numbers of firefighter suicides are jaw-dropping. As often as a few times a week, Jeff finds himself answering calls for help from fire chiefs around the country.

    Join the Firefighter Netcast Show tonight at 9pm ET for a live interview with Chief Dill, and learn how to recognize emotional distress in your partner or your loved one, and the steps you can take to help- before it’s too late.
