I had a sit down talk with Mallory Super about the KCKFD Peer Support team. Sharing both of our mission statements as well as general talk about the role of the Peer Support program.
In January of 2020 I decided to start a YouTube channel. My mission is to help bring awareness to firefighter issues like PTSD and occupational cancer through the game of golf. My hope with this channel is to play golf with firefighters and share their stories.
My name is Steve Pope and I have been a Firefighter for the Kansas City, Kansas Fire Department for 23 years and the Merriam Fire Department for 1. I am an avid golfer who wants to grow the game of golf with this channel but also bring awareness to the issues above.
I have a passion for golf and this mission because I have some PTSD issues that have caused problems in my family life as well as everyday coping. If you are a Firefighter, First Responder, Military or just a golfer that wants to play with me please reach out.
