Mental Health for EMS and Fire Service

Each day, firefighters and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) workers face various challenges and hazards associated with their work – they are often the first to respond to a traumatic event. That’s why it’s critical they have the skills they need to support themselves, the people they serve and their colleagues through a mental health crisis.
Mental Health First Aid for Fire/EMS focuses on the unique experiences and needs of firefighters and EMS personnel and is a valuable resource that can make a difference in their lives, their coworkers’ and families’ lives and the communities in which they serve. Mental Health First Aid for Fire/EMS is an 8-hour, groundbreaking course, which enables fire and EMS personnel to appropriately respond to mental health and addiction crises.

Fayetteville Fire & EMS, in conjunction with the NYS Office of Mental Health, will be hosting the Mental Health First Aid for Fire & EMS course on Sunday, September 16th & 23rd at the FFD (must attend both sessions). Class runs 1730-2130 both nights, is free of charge, and is open to all public safety personnel.
