REBOOT First Responders is a 12-week, faith-based, peer-led course that helps first responders and their families heal from critical incident stress and trauma.
The practical tools and teaching found in this course are specifically designed for those within the law enforcement, fire, EMS, emergency communications, hospital emergency and corrections communities.
The first to respond to the needs of others are often the last to seek help for themselves. If that's you, the time is now to break free from trauma and change your life.

What our participants are saying
This program was able to put a face on many of the things I’ve felt and experienced during my 22 years in law enforcement. It has been an excellent conversation starter for my wife and I. We now communicate about issues we have not before. I strongly recommend this course whether you think you need it or not.
REBOOT is a MUST for any public safety responder. From 911 Dispatch to ER/trauma nurses/doctors and each step between, it’s enlightening. We join this field knowing we will experience trauma but are not prepared for the trauma and its fallout when it comes. This course provides the tools needed for future trauma and how to deal with past trauma . . . I wouldn’t hesitate to refer anyone to this course.
This course helps not only first responders but their spouses! The group of people that come to this class are in the same boat with you and it's good to know we can talk out loud and feel safe and not judged and just loved! And having God involved was right up our alley!
Anyone in the public safety field should take this course. If you have been diagnosed with PTSD or not. This will help you ward off PTSD or help you heal if you have PTSD.

There is no cost to anyone attending our groups. Food, childcare and curriculum are included in most cases.
We understand that family dynamics can be complicated and that it is not always possible for both the service member and spouse to attend. We do highly emphasize that completing the course together is ideal; however, if only one of you can join us, please come!
Typical REBOOT groups have between 10-15 attendees, but sometimes the groups can be larger. If crowds bother you, feel free to arrive early and talk to your local leader who will be able to give you advice on how to handle the crowds and manage your stress.

We understand that schedules are busy, so we try to be as flexible as possible. Once you attend your first meeting, let your local group leaders know which meetings you need to miss and they can provide you with materials you can follow while you are away so you don’t fall behind. We recommend members not miss more than three weeks.
At REBOOT, we welcome people of all faith backgrounds, but we don’t hide the fact that we look at combat trauma from a Biblical perspective. We believe that healing is not found in our advice, but in the transformative power of God. Our job is to connect the hurting with the Healer. On our course surveys, 98% of participants said their opinions on faith and spirituality were respected by others in the group.
As a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, we rely on donations and grants to effectively support our course locations and help families heal. Also, our course leaders or host locations often cover all of the expenses of participants that attend their group.
Your privacy is of utmost importance to us. Read this carefully: nothing you share with us (outside of self harm or illegal activity) will be shared with anyone outside the privacy of our groups. This means that nothing you share will hurt your role or rank.
