"The reasons men and women become first responders is primarily to ease the suffering of others. They come to the job with a great sense of compassion and are frustrated when they enter a situation for which they have little or no training and find themselves at a loss for the necessary skills to make a difference. For instance, when a child dies, the family is devastated and looking for answers. The MISS Foundation's training "Compassionate Intervention With Families" provides the information to extend the natural compassion brought to the job to the next level. I would recommend this training to all first responder organizations."
