Some things aren’t just “part of the job.”

A lot of people don’t know what a First Responder or Military Member goes through, even though when they try to make an effort; even among our own, it can be hard to talk about “work”.

This is why Boots On The Ground started. BOTG is an anonymous helpline where First Responders and Military Members can share with someone with similar experiences. Boots on the Ground Alberta is a localised chapter that aims to provide anonymous helpline to First Responders and Military Members based in Alberta. BOTG or BOTG-Alberta aren’t therapists. We’re just here to listen with no call display and no judgment!
