Emergency Medical Service (EMS) personnel are frequently jolted awake in the middle of the night and expected to perform miracles in the back of a rig doing 60 mph. They see people at the worst moments of their lives.

We, at the First Responders Resilience Center, understand the impact that working in emergency services can have on a person’s life. Dr. Pytal volunteered as an EMT with the Montgomery County, MD Fire Department and understands the stressors that EMS personnel face.
