Behind the Shield
A Tough Conversation
Tuesday, October 27, 2020
Tonight, we had an amazing time with James Geering from Behind the Shield.
James had always dreamed of becoming a Firefighter, and has been a Firefighter/Paramedic for fourteen years now. He also is a Crossfit coach and has a Bachelor's Degree in Exercise Physiology and Kinesiology. Through is career as a Firefighter, he noticed a trend of ill health, depression, and suicide within the First Responder communities. He began searching for healing and wellness and questioning everything he had been taught. He realized there was a giant void in the area of First Responder Wellness. The advice and literature out there was outdated and disconnected from the rigors of shift life. He started his own Podcast, Behind the Shield, to bring some of the greatest minds on the planet to the men and women who protect our communities. And tonight, he's here to share his story with us!
