Ben Vernon has proudly served the citizens of San Diego as a Firefighter/Paramedic with the Fire Rescue Department for over a decade. He’s a member of the Hazardous Materials and Technical Rescue Teams, the FEMA California Task Force Eight Urban Search and Rescue Team and holds five specialist positions. On June 24, 2015, Ben's life changed. While responding to a "routine medical assistance" call, he was stabbed multiple times by a bystander. The incident led Ben to become a champion for first responder PTSD recognition and treatment. He now travels the country to share his story to help others, while still continuing to serve his community from Station 14 in San Diego.
