Betties Bombers is the heart of Gaming for Mental Health

Our Social Community

We support GFMH by spreading awareness in our local community; working with local mental health and social service organizations to connect with resources; and hosting meet ups for first responders and veterans to make social connections.

Our primary service area is the greater NY-NJ Metropolitan area and includes Eastern PA, Washington DC, and CT. Our online services are available to anyone within the Continental US and Canada.

Anyone who supports First Responders and Veterans, or has an interest in advocating for mental health and suicide prevention is welcome to join Betties Bombers community. We support those who support us and have many opportunities for you to get involved and help us further our mission.

Covid 19 restrictions are being lifted here in NJ.

How to Observe ​Fire Prevention Week

  • Be Prepared

The purpose of Fire Prevention Week is to bring awareness to the risk of death in case of a fire and provide educational resources to people of all ages, races, and socioeconomic status in order to keep everyone safe.

  1. Make an Escape Plan
  2. Change the batteries in your smoke detector regularly, use daylight savings time as a reminder
  3. Be mindful of where you put your space heaters, keep them away from curtains and other loose fabrics around the home
  4. In the kitchen, never leave food cooking unattended and don’t pour water on a grease fire. Put a lid on it to smother it, turn off the burner and let it cool.
  5. Always, watch the placement of candles and never leave them lit while you are not home

When in doubt, just get out and call 911!
