FIRST RESPONDERS SUPPORTING FIRST RESPONDERS.
We know that many first responders fight through situations alone—we’ve done it, too.
We see the toll this line of work takes on people and their families.
6th Alarm is a nonprofit first responder peer support organization serving active duty and retired emergency responders in Tippecanoe County and surrounding areas. We’ve seen firsthand the mental and physical impact that being a first responder has, and it’s time to remove the negative stigma that surrounds seeking support for issues like:
- Anger Management
- Anxiety and Depression
- Drinking and/or Drug Abuse
- Relationship Struggles
- Sleeping Difficulties
We recognize that all firefighters, police officers, dispatchers, and emergency medical service personnel are human beings who will be exposed to a variety of circumstances and experience associated emotions and thoughts.
We provide a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential environment where members can engage in a healing conversation with a mentor. 6th Alarm mentors also seek to share the concept of peer support and end the stigma of seeking assistance.
Our volunteer mentors are active duty or retired first responders.
We’ve been in your shoes and responded to similar calls. That means we understand the mental and physical strain this line of work can have while you're on duty and at home.
Mental strength is vital, so we encourage first responders to seek confidential support when they feel they need it.
From the things you witness to the mental battles you face every day, it’s important to know you are fully supported by others who have seen it all.
We have trained volunteer peer mentors from the following local agencies:
