Rick Bucher was raised in Scottsdale, AZ, a Rural/Metro firefighter and elite cyclist who battled depression and PTS throughout his career.

I worked with Bucher while I was at Scottsdale PD. I knew more of him, as a firefighter, then knew him personally. What I did know him as was one of the top cyclist and MTBer’s in the Valley, and a guy that I could never beat at the Police & Fire Games.

You can image my surprise when I went to listen to the Cleared Hot Podcast and saw that he was the guest.

The story he tells is one that I had no idea he was going through and it’s a story every military, law enforcement and firefighter should listen to if they think they are experiencing any form of Post Traumatic Stress.

I also highly recommend other episodes of Cleared Hot like the one with Mike Glover.
