SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. — The Spokane Valley Fire Department partnered with app developer Cordico to design a wellness app for their employees.

The app will assist Spokane Valley firefighters with their mental health and wellness needs.

PTSD is experienced by many firefighters due to traumatic situations in the line of duty.

On April 28, SVFD Fire Chief Bryan Collins, Firefighter and Local 876 President, Shawn Pichette, and Fire Commissioner, Mike Kester will host a Facebook Live stream to unveil the app and answer questions.

The stream will begin at 11 a.m.
