This book is about everyday heroism. It is about the work that emergency responders do and the traumatic situations that they face when serving the public. It looks at factors at multiple levels that make these jobs and the impact that they have on individuals and their families more or less difficult. The purpose is to show that it is not one event alone that causes trauma in people working in the emergency services. Rather, trauma is the result of the interplay between an event, the person encountering the event, the public and media response to the event, the organization in which responders work, and the supports and life that they have outside the workplace. In the end, the book provides suggestions for intervention that take into account these multiple levels of influence.

Keywords:   emergency responders, emergency services, trauma, intervention, interplay, event, media
