In this 16th year since 9/11 we are pleased to have Lori Mercer talk about the stress that firefighters, first responders and their families endure in times of crisis. Lori's biography below explains the ideas for the formation of her non-profit 24-7 COMMITMENT.

Lori Mercer was just a girl who fell in love with a firefighter, and then together they survived the tumultuous fire life struggles and avoided divorce due to the high stress and challenging schedules first responders face.   She began her Firefighter Wife blog in 2012 which quickly grew to over 100,000 followers saying "Yes!  Finally someone who understands my life!".  Dan and Lori chose to use this for good and start the non-profit 24-7 COMMITMENT to strengthen the marriages and families of first responders.   Through their Commitment Weekend marriage events, online marriage training and support communities and the book she has written, they continue to reach hundreds of thousands firefighters across the country daily with a message of encouragement for their marriages.   They are funded primarily through individual and corporate donors, merchandise sales and the Columbus Stair Climb event.   Their goal is to decrease the divorce rate amongst first responders and strengthen the first responder community to support each other more on a personal level to prevent more divorces.


Registration is open for this luncheon and will close Monday, Sept. 18th at 5 pm.
