In support of the NFFF, the First Responder Center plans to become the leading resource for first responders and their family members in addressing physical, emotional, and psychological health issues and to promote research in relevant fields to increase awareness of first responder health issues and prevent first responder deaths and injuries. The Center will develop innovative methods to address the growing concerns related to the presence of cancers within the First Responder Community and expand Stress First Aid, a new behavioral health intervention program, as well as similar programs. The Center will work closely with the NFFF, which has existing knowledge and expertise in these fields and others to further its charitable and educational mission.
