Conference Overview

Everyday Superheroes: The Resilient Front Line

.

 Why do some people thrive in the midst of daily challenges and chaos while others get taken out? Why can some people tolerate a tremendous amount of stress and others get sick?


Resilience.  Resilience is the ability to bounce back in the face of hardship and adversity, and perform your best on a consistent basis. Like a stress ball that returns to its original shape after being squeezed, the resilient recover more quickly when life's pressures mount.


We believe 9-1-1 professionals are the unsung superheroes of our communities, every day.  We believe that thriving in 9-1-1 takes grit, and determination.  We believe health and well-being are not merely the absence of illness. We believe health is the ability to express one's full range of potential.
