VIDEO: It’s a startling statistic – since 2015, more firefighters and police officers are dying by suicide than in the line of duty, according to a report.
In January, nearly 1,000 Fort Worth firefighters will take a course to learn to spot the signs of someone at risk for suicide.
According to a report published in 2017 by the Ruderman Family Foundation, almost 250 firefighters and police officers died by suicide in 2016 across the United States, as compared to just over 200 that died in the line of duty.
