Ponca Hills Yellow Ribbon

After losing a friend & firefighter last fall, Ponca Hills rallied together to bring suicide prevention to a hurting community. Yellow Ribbon provided our First Responder Training to the Ponca Hills Volunteer Fire Department. Following the training we began taking with Barb O'Keefe, who had taken the lead on brining in YR and making plans for how to carry on prevention for those who call Ponca Hills home.

Since then, Barb has been out to YRI to attend our two-day Train The Trainer in February, and is off running with Ponca Hills Yellow Ribbon Chapter! At last count she's already distributed north of 400 YR Cards, began building connections in the community, planning events for YR Suicide Prevention Week this September & an April 22 Open House to inform the community & Ask 4 Help!® presentation for youth (ages 11-18) including a FREE Lunch!

We're also crediting the Ponca Hills VFD for the newest addition to the YR Store - thanks to the Fire Chief requesting a YR Decal to put on the departments Ambulance, we now offer an 8" weather-proof YR Logo for sale!

Way To Go Barb & Ponca Hills!
