We cover such serious, deadly topics that it’s important for us to lighten the load with some laughter at times throughout our class.
-Jacqueline Toomey, Founder of the First Responder Sleep Recovery Program
It all started when...
...my Denver Firefighter husband began using my proven sleep techniques to recover after busy nights. After seeing a drastic improvement in all of his vitals, and noticeable spike in his overall wellness and energy levels, we decided it was important to share these techniques with a larger audience of first responders. We incorporated these techniques and my knowledge from the 10 plus years of working in the health and wellness field and rolled it into what is now called The First Responder Sleep Recovery Program.
