So many people are affected by suicides each year.
First responders not only respond to these emergencies, but sometimes sadly this is their cause of death.
But it is not only first responders that are affected, but all people have known someone or knows someone that has been affected by a suicide.
Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US each year. Suicide rates are on the rise each year.
Recently the NY Daily News reported that first responders are more likely to die of suicide than any other way.

We stand together in this photo to let everyone know that suicide doesn't have to be the answer. We are all here for eachother just as much as we are here to help the public.
There are many outlets and support groups that can help someone considering suicide.

If you think someone needs help, reach out to your local authority, their family or friends to try to get them help.
National Suicide Prevention Lifeline (800) 273-8255
