- The Bridge
After the tragic deaths of Westerville (OH) Police Officers Tony Morelli and Eric Joering, retired Westerville Police Officer Mike Pavolino and Retired Columbus Officer Mick Yinger realized that we do such a great job supporting the families and community when a First Responder dies in the line of duty, as we should and will continue to do. The Bridge identified a need to extend this support to the First Responder that experiences a single traumatic event or the one that has built up years of stress. As First Responders stress and traumatic events become a regular part of what we do, which leads to problems in our personal and our professional lives.
The Bridge, Corp. is a non-profit made up of First Responders who have experienced traumatic events first hand, clinicians who have counseled numerous First Responders and business and community leaders who have a heart for helping our First Responder heroes and their families.
