This episode features Brandon Dreiman from Indianapolis (IN) Firefighter’s Local 416 and Dave Gerold from the Columbus (OH) Division of Fire. The pair speaks with host Jim Burneka about the perils of being the peer lead in large fire departments and the trials and tribulations we’ve personally have had. Topics include being on call 24/7, secondary trauma, sustainability, navigating management, resiliency/coping skills, and advice for peers in our positions. This show should assist peer coordinators handling the pressure while salvaging themselves.
