First Responders comprise a large and tightly interwoven family linked with one another across the nation. Collectively, they are our most valuable but also most vulnerable public servants. The many stressors accompanying their unique jobs are life-altering and greatly impact the quality of life for them and their families. First Responders serve and protect us daily, often putting their health and even their lives in peril. Yet the public that relies constantly on their vigilance and skills understand little of the sacrifices they endure for our benefit.

This book, published by Stakeholder Press, shares in depth the work of the Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist’s First Responder Chaplaincy Program’s (FRCP) team members, who essentially function as First Responders to the First Responders. It includes the FRCP’s history, development, staffing and training, and is a comprehensive, descriptive and quantitative effort to highlight and value its work.

Rev. Glenn Davis, MDiv, is the founder/director of the First Responder Chaplaincy Program in the FaithHealth Division at Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist. The FRCP is a one-of-a-kind innovation as a hospital-based, community-focused model of chaplaincy delivering highly proactive, on-scene care. He and his team routinely deploy to assist First Responders and other organizations and provide training for faith communities, other care providers and businesses to improve their crisis response readiness and resilience.

Teresa Cutts, PhD, serves as Research Assistant Professor in the Public Health Sciences Division at Wake Forest School of Medicine (WFSOM) in Winston-Salem, NC. She also holds ap pointments in the Maya Angelou Center for Health Equity and is a Visiting Professor at the University of Capetown’s School of Family Medicine and Public Health. She is the academic liaison to the Stakeholder Health learning collaborative.
