Join us in Olympia Washington for episode 8, as we sit down to tackle a difficult topic with special guest, retired Captain Paramedic Kevin Rhone, as he shares his story of dealing with post traumatic stress injury (PSTI) caused by long term traumatic exposures during a 30 year career in the fire service. Kevin talks about his personal journey and education during treatment, as well as signs and symtoms of PTSI that we should all be aware of as Firefighters and Paramedics.
