Meaningful Movies Tacoma & Gig Harbor is pleased to present, The Call We Carry – Confronting PTSD in the Fire Service

The Call We Carry follows the journey of 4 Tacoma Firefighters as they share their stories of pain, sacrifice, and resiliency in the midst of an unprecedented call volume increase. The film provides an intimate glimpse into the lives of those who put it all on the line every day, in an effort to prove once and for all that NO ONE FIGHTS ALONE.

In a profession that few ever see, and even fewer understand, a crisis is brewing among today’s first responders. Over 37% meet clinical diagnosis for PTSD, and most go untreated and even unrecognized. In a culture where showing vulnerability means showing weakness, this ground-breaking documentary attempts to break down these barriers and smash the stigma of mental health in the fire service.
