The Indianapolis, Middle Tennessee, and Redneck Rivera F.O.O.L.S. chapters initiated this program to prompt discussion and raise awareness about suicide. The stigma associated with suicide inhibits discussion and we are seeing too many of our bothers and sisters ending their lives. We believe F.O.O.L.S. C.A.R.E.S. will help us be our brother’s keeper and prevent suicide.

Call … Encourage the courage to call for help. Proudly wear the
F.O.O.L.S. C.A.R.E.S. tetrahedron on your helmet so others will
ask what it is about!

Ask … Don’t wait for another suicide, ask how you and your chapter can
help spread the word and eliminate the stigma associated with
asking for help

Respond to the need and take a suicide awareness/prevention class

Encourage your administration and community to provide resources to
raise awareness and provide help

Save a life by talking about this issue and lending an ear; sometimes all
you have to do is take the time listen

We have designed the following tetrahedron to raise awareness and get folks talking. We hope it will cause others to ask you what it means and start the dialogue about suicide prevention. The number on the tetrahedron is the same number posted on the F.O.O.L.S. International web site. 1-800-273-(TALK) 8255

We are asking other F.O.O.L.S. chapters to order these self stick, reflective helmet tetrahedrons to wear proudly and join the Indianapolis, Middle Tennessee & Redneck Riviera F.O.O.L.S. raise awareness and help prevent the next contemplated suicide.

• Chief Level: 100 tetrahedrons = $60
• Captain Level: 50 tetrahedrons = $44
• Lieutenant Level: 25 tetrahedrons = $28
• Firefighter Level: 10 tetrahedrons = $17

You will be able to buy these soon please check back....

Let’s make more of a difference than we already do and be the leaders in this arena to wipe out suicide in the American Fire Service!

Sincerely,

Manuel Navarro, President Indianapolis F.O.O.L.S.
Dave Brasells, President Middle Tennessee F.O.O.L.S.
Scott Gamache, President Redneck Riviera F.O.O.L.S.
