WMFE In-Depth is a deeper dive into the enlightening, educational, inspiring news coverage 90.7 WMFE is known for. The long-form stories and in-depth reporting here reflect the Central Florida communities that have come to trust the high-quality news coverage that WMFE provides.
TRAUMA AFTER TRAGEDY
WMFE is partnering with ProPublica to investigate the impact of post-traumatic stress disorder in first responders. Whether it’s after the Pulse nightclub shooting or responding to a bad accident, first responders across the country are suffering in silence, plagued by nightmares, flashbacks, and seeing danger behind every corner . Some lose their jobs. Some are failed by the worker’s compensation system. Others won’t raise their hand to get help because of stigma.

Our first project is on the one-year mark of the Pulse nightclub shooting. In our coverage, we’ve focused on the stories of the people: people who survived and how they are moving forward; people who were lost and how they are remembered; and people – in the Orlando community and around the globe – who were moved to respond in the wake of the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
