VIDEO: As soldiers risk their lives on the front lines, crews of first responders are busy clearing out and re-building the areas that have been destroyed. Those crews, some of which are from other countries like America and Australia, aren't only clearing debris. They're also finding bodies. As a result, they're suffering from deep emotional stress. That's why a group of South Florida firefighters are headed to Poland to lend mental health support to the teams who need it most. "When you have a group of what we consider our brothers and sisters, wherever they are in the world, going above and beyond for something like this, the unthinkable, you want to be there for them," said Miami-Dade firefighter Lucianna Genova, who is among the first responders heading to help those on the front Ukrainian.
