In the beginning of October retired Firefighter Paramedic Hans Albrecht brother to current Engineer Andrew Albrecht went into the hospital for stroke like symptoms. Shortly after it was discovered that he had a brain tumor that was causing his symptoms.  He went into surgery the next day to remove as much of the tumor as possible. The doctors were able to get about 3/4, but due to the type of tumor it was involving other areas that they could not remove at this time. He was diagnosed with glioblastoma and has a long road ahead.  The treatments are aggressive, and he may need repeated surgery. Hans was a Henderson Firefighter Paramedic for over 21 years prior to retirement.  He has spent most of his life helping others and needs our support now. Your help with donations to ease their financial burden at this time is greatly appreciated.  Anything helps, thank you!

The Importance of Self-Care

Feeling stressed, irritable, anxious, or just not feeling yourself? You may have been neglecting your self-care.

Dr. Mynda Ohs, PhD recently presented The Importance of Self-Care for COH employees.  It is a great watch if you were not able to attend.  For more information please visit her website the Fully Involved Life 

 

Today we remember our brother, partner, and friend Firefighter Paramedic Robbie Pettingill. Robbie was an exceptional firefighter paramedic that we could always count on to have our backs. We all knew him as the “funniest person I have ever known”. It didn’t matter if you worked with him on your first day out of rookie school or 10 years in you were treated the same, and by the end of the shift you would already be going to grab coffee as best friends. All people were your people which is why you were loved by so many. It breaks our hearts knowing how bad you were struggling on the inside while still having that infectiously great attitude on the outside.

 

Robbie was a great friend and partner to so many affiliated with the HFBA which is why we take great pride and responsibility to honor him and continue his mission of improving firefighter mental health and wellness.

 

If you are struggling you need to know that the world needs YOU! You are not a burden, you are loved, and you are not alone. This isn’t the end, there is always a reason to keep hope. We are all people of an unlimited number of chances. There is always help. There is always hope.

Last summer, Henderson, NV Police Officer Troy McDermed collapsed while on a traffic stop and was taken to Henderson Hospital where he underwent testing to determine what occurred. Several days later, Officer McDermed was diagnosed with stage 4 neuroendocrine carcinoma. His cancer is inoperable and incurable, and after 15 years of service to the City of Henderson, he will be medically retiring. Officer McDermed will be auctioning off some of his prized possessions to help with the cost of his cancer treatments, and it would be a tremendous boost to the auction if we could also help with fundraising efforts!

Officer McDermed has faced tremendous obstacles since his cancer diagnosis, and has many expenses related to his medical care. Your help with donations to assist Officer McDermed and his wife ease some of the financial worries associated with his care would be amazing. Anything helps, thank you!
