First Responder Family Support and Preparedness

Hurricane Matthew RespondersAs responders are deployed for disasters near and far, how do their families react and manage the departure of their loved ones? We dig into the effects of disasters on the families of first responders. What does family preparedness for deployment look like and what is the family’s role in helping manage the aftermath of stress on responders.

We also have meteorologists Dan and Becky DePodwin on to talk about the winter storm striking across the center of the United States and stretching into the northeast. We also delve into how weather professionals who predict and observe disastrous weather events in real time deal with the trauma.
