Resources for First Responders

Serving Injured First Responders in Seattle & Throughout Washington

Every day, first responders risk their health, safety, and lives in service to others. Often, law enforcement officers, paramedics, EMTs, firefighters, healthcare workers, and other first responders suffer serious injuries and work-related medical conditions, affecting their physical health and mental wellbeing.

There are a variety of local support groups available to different types of first responders in Seattle and the surrounding areas. Along with professional medical care, these groups can provide a much-needed network for healing.

At Emery Reddy Serious Injury Department, we are proud to serve first responders and others who prioritize the safety and wellbeing of the public. To that end, we have put together a list of resources for injured first responders and their families. In addition to these resources, we encourage you to speak to your or your loved one’s healthcare provider, who can provide additional resources and information on obtaining physical and/or mental health services specific to your or your loved one’s needs.
