Thank you for your wonderful presentation and for really giving insight into the first response profession. You have definitely started meaningful conversations and have no doubt saved lives!!”

    Megan Burke, Benefits Coordinator, Chesterfield Township Municipal Offices

  • “I wanted you to know how much I enjoyed the training. You and Mike are saving lives, saving relationships, and preventing substance abuse with every presentation. Every public safety employee should attend this valuable training. I admire the courage and forthright nature by which you tell your personal story to bring home the importance of emotional wellness for first responders.”

  • “My wife attended the Career Survival training. She said she wishes she could have gone through this 14 years ago... The instructors and material were excellent. She said she now understands why I am the way I am (whatever that means!)... [and] it will be really beneficial to our relationship going forward. Just wanted to let you know your work is appreciated.”

    14 Year Police Veteran

  • “I had the opportunity to attend a ‘class’ for first responders and their families last night put on by 2 The Rescue of Grand Rapids. It was VERY informative and I wish every first responding agency could host these gentlemen for their responders and spouses/family members! Thankful for the opportunity!”

    Michelle Deyo Beckwith

  • “The classroom session was packed with information that will definitely help our drivers make better and safer decisions while the hands-on training gave each participant invaluable experience that some have never had before. Also, the fact you took time to learn our city and identify some problem areas meant a lot to us.”

    Cody C. – Captain, Sturgis Fire Department, Sturgis, MI

  • “The 2 of you do a great job of making people aware of a lot of things they are oblivious to. I learned from your seminar, I enjoyed your seminar, and I have recommended it to the Ohio County Auditors (assessors) Executive Director for inclusion in one of our upcoming meetings. I enjoyed it and I would attend again.”
