SUICIDE PREVENTION AND CRISIS INTERVENTION GUIDEBOOK 

 

From http://www.firenuggets.com/suicide.htm

 

...This manual was a labor of love, determination, dedication and commitment by several members of the San Jose Fire Department in California. Sadly enough, it was written after several years of sadness and grief experienced by the families, extended families and the fire family of San Jose Fire Department Firefighters. This manual is in memory of several beloved San Jose Firefighters. We miss them each and every day. The authors hope to provide a resource for firefighters should they find themselves, their coworkers, their families or someone they know in need. Their hope is to open our eyes to a word that is seldom spoken and difficult to talk about, but one that touches the hearts and minds of the survivors of suicide forever....
