While Americans watch COVID-19 sweep the country, three states seem to stand out from the others; Connecticut, New York, and New Jersey. These states have seen the greatest impact from COVID-19 with high infection and spread rates. But what is it like on the front lines in one of these states? How are first responders dealing with the pandemic? I want to explain to you what it is like.

I am a Critical Care Paramedic in a small town. I’m also the supervisor of our county’s division. I’ve worked for the same company since 2003, and I love what I do and where I work. Sometimes, because we aren’t in big cities, it gets brushed off as we don’t experience the trauma and PTSD that first responders in the more populated areas experience. But I don’t agree. Sometimes, I think it’s worse.

You know you are truly healing when your heart is at home—literally
For those of you who know me, you know that my passions are found in marriage and family. These relationships are the well-spring of life. The ones I am most focused on are the ones we create at the alter when we say “I do.” That is the beginning of the most important relationship we will ever have here on earth.
