The IAFF Center of Excellence issued a recent article that discussed four factors to help support the spouses of paramedics. Being the spouse of paramedics can be extremely tough and these four pointers can help build harmonious and supportive relationships. The four pointers shared in the article are:
1) Loneliness Is to Be Expected
2) Sometimes, You'll Feel Like You Take a Backseat to Your Spouse's Crew
3) The Biggest Threats to Your Spouse's Health are Invisible
4) It's Okay to Ask for Help
