Our Mission
Support 1 is a 501 (c) 3 Non-Profit Organization with a specific focus; supporting our Emergency First Responders involved in critical incidents. Emergency First Responders consist of our Law Enforcement Officers, Firefighters, and Emergency Medical Service employees. This program is designed to assist these individuals with organized training and additional funding for departmental needs before, during, and after critical incidents. Since many departmental budgets are not prepared to provide funding for these services, Support 1 will obtain funding through donations and fundraising events to assist these departments.

First Responders and Families
We offer training not only for the first responder, but also include their family to help heal after a critical incident.
Timing is Vital
It is vital that our Emergency First Responders needs are met before, during, and after critical incidents. They should return to duty without the additional stress and focus on the performance of their duties.
Department Assistance Provided
Although Support 1 is focused on the First Responders in the CSRA, we have trained numerous First Responders from all over the United States as well as sending multi-agency CISM teams from the CSRA to areas all over the Southeast.
