PTSD comes almost guaranteed for most of us, firefighters. On average, 100 firefighters lose their lives in the line of duty. However, that number doubles when it comes to firefighters who end up committing suicide. That is an alarming leap, and that is only a number that has been recorded.
Building Grit was created to shed light on this problem and to make PTSD a worker's comp related issue. As it stands firefighters every day are dropping 10% or more of their income on treatment that is only needed because of their experiences on the job.
