Orlando FOX 35’s Good Day Orlando recently honored Seminole County Fire Department’s Lt. Joshua Marzolf with its “Care Force” Award. The award honors local first responders who are making a difference in their community. Lt. Marzolf heads the Department’s Peer Support Team, which provides mental health resources and support to first responders and dispatchers in need. He has been a Firefighter since 2015 and is a reservist member for the U.S. military. Lt. Marzolf also believes in the positive side of speaking about your trauma. In 2005, he had multiple concussions from a military assignment, seen the after effect of many suicide bombings and lost many of his friends in the war in Iraq. He makes it his mission to help others connect with mental health resources and talk about their struggles as he knows speaking honestly about mental help can be lifesaving.
