First Responders are four times as likely to suffer from mental health disorders. Help support those who are there for you.
The Ottawa First Responders Foundation came about when the creator of the foundation, Brenda Tirrell spoke to a fellow firefighter after a traumatic experience. She asked him, if he could have anything to help at this point, something that would make difference, what would it be. His answer… I would like a magnet. A magnet with ONE number to call for help. And so, the idea for the OFRF was born.
