  Spouses Class:
Understanding Your Firefighter and Your Relationship
Being a Firefighter Spouse is a "job" in and of itself–and not
an easy one!
The stress a firefighter brings home takes a heavy toll on family relationships. Firefighter relationships require a unique approach and understanding to be successful. Come learn about:
• Stresses that commonly exist within a firefighter relationship
• Common versus alarming behaviors in firefighters
• Strategies to make sure you’re taking care of yourself as a spouse
• Ways spouses can support their firefighter and their unique relationship
The firefighter spouses class is a free offering during Winter Fire School with no registration needed. Simply come and learn about ways to take care of yourself and your firefighter when the stresses of the fire service creep into relationships.
The class will be taught by a husband and wife who are both firefighters. There will be a question and answer portion at the end for participants to bring up any questions or
concerns not covered during the class.
