Lots of counseling services are being offered to friends and family of the 20 victims killed in Saturday's crash. As NewsChannel 13's Benita Zahn reported on Monday, those same resources are needed for and being provided to the first responders at the scene.
Two local fire chiefs say Saturday's crash is continuing to affect their personal and professional lives.
A debriefing is taking place at the Schoharie Volunteer Fire Department Tuesday evening to give first responders resources to help them grieve. Esperance Fire Chief Matthew Deffer said that social media and media coverage in general makes the grieving process more difficult for first responders.
Of course, everyone wants answers as to how and why this horrific crash happened, but the responders can't un-see the crash. Now, they're seeing pictures of those 20 people before the crash.
