First responders are used to being the helpers and not focusing on themselves, but advocates want to bring more awareness to how emergency workers deal with trauma.

And Roth and others are also hoping that teams like the one in Pittsburgh can create a statewide network to share resources and training.

A colorful new addition at the intersection of Brownsville Road and Parkfield Street in Carrick is the first of its kind. The artist-designed intersection is a first in the city and the result of a community-driven project, per a city news release. It started with plans for traffic and safety improvements at the intersection but morphed into also including the artwork. Artist Guy Ruff created the design to represent the neighborhood using images of a swan and flowers, per WPXI. Ruff also used muted colors at the request of the community.
