The Lighthouse Experiment

It's the question that you should not ask a first responder. But the lighthouse experiment is doing something unique with these stories. This book will help people to get a glimpse of what this job does to your heart and mind, but most importantly, help the ones writing these letters! For most of us these are the things we don't talk about and that builds over time causing the issues in our country we're having today. The ruined marriages, substance abuse, depression, burn out and suicide.. Writing these words down may help that responder to take a little weight from their chest and let them breath, we hope anyway. Also, if you or a family member were the recipient of care, send those in too, it's always nice to hear!
If you would like to write a letter for the book you can contact the lighthouse experiment on the FB page, or contact me and I will take them and get them to the proper people. Remember, these are anonymous and hand written please.

Thank you all

Flint Chapter

Hey friends and followers of The Lighthouse Experiment. One of our 2020 plans is to create a book of letters and short stories. These writings would be stories about specific calls, or letters to patients who maybe didn’t survive. For veterans it would be stories from down range. This is a big ask I know. The first rule has always been never ask a first responder what their worst call was and that’s precisely what we are doing. So Veterans, Police, Fire, EMS, and dispatchers we would love you to consider sharing your stories. If interested let us know in comments or on the pages message option. There will be more details to follow.

Sidebar: These will be completely anonymous.

“YOU WERE MORE THAN JUST A CALL”
Where do I even begin? I guess I should start by introducing myself; I was one of the Firefighter/Paramedics that received the call that you were in trouble. We immediately dropped everything that we were doing, ran out into the bay, and jumped on the Engine. On our way to you, we talked about our game plan and what our roles would be as soon as we made scene. This is the way a lot of the calls begin, but after this point, they’re all different.When we pulled up, the house was close to 100% involved in fire. And though most were positive that you were already gone, we still hold onto that glimpse of hope. We worked and pushed so hard, trying to extinguish the flames enough that we could make entry and search for you......but we were unable to get to you in time. We arrived on scene to find what was left of a vehicle. You were still inside, surrounded by twisted aluminum and steel, and very seriously injured. We worked nonstop, using every tool we could to extricate you from the vehicle..... but time was against us, and you died right in front of our eyes. Other times you had already passed away before any of us got to you; but I swear to you we did everything we could to preserve your dignity while we cut up the vehicle to retrieve your body.We came in to find you unconscious and without a pulse. We immediately gathered around you, interchanging jobs of CPR, giving you breaths, and administering medications. To this day I have never seen a cardiac arrest worked so textbook perfect....but we were unable to revive you.
You were my first ever infant call. We ran in past officers and neighbors to get to you. I held your little body in my hands, doing CPR with my thumbs, while your parents screamed your name and held each other in the corner of the room. To this day, I have no idea how I held back the tears; I just remember praying, in a screaming inner voice, for God to take my life and let you live....but that wasn’t His plan that day.
I just wanted to let you know that I did everything that I could to help you; I tried my very best. By Andrew Stroud

WATCH: According to a survey on first responder mental health conducted by the University of Phoenix , as of 2017 more than 80% of first responders, including firefighters, police officers, EMT-paramedics and nurses have experienced symptoms related to mental health issues.

It’s because of that alarming statistic that the EMS Roaddocs North Texas Chapter, a club made up of medical, fire and military personnel, decided to create a non-profit called SAFER.

"It stands for selfless acts for emergency responders,” said Chapter President Wesley William.

Jamey, Shelby, Rob and I rode out for this today. This little boy was ecstatic to see all the bikes pull up! Said we were his friends. He must have said everybody give yourself a hand at least 10 times! The family was prepared to feed all the bikers that showed up, which was unexpected, especially not knowing how many to expect. It was a fun day! https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=10155782796888450&id=670108449
