BLUE WALL INSTITUTE

image55

The Blue Wall Institute  mission is to improve the quality of life for our first responders by educating them on all the dangers of the job. We take a holistic approach, in that we not only include first responders in our training, but supervisors, administrators, and first responder families. A first responder in need of assistance may not see a problem for what it is. Their judgment and perception may be clouded, which is why including those closest to the first responder in training is an essential part of saving lives and averting tragedy, as we believe "saving lives begins in the classroom."™

The key components of FRSN are the 6-day residential treatment for first responders, also known as the West Coast Post-trauma Retreat (WCPR), and the 6-day program for significant others & spouses (SOS).
