Our Efforts are intended to reduce critical incident stress reactions, enabling our colleagues to adapt to a new normal after a traumatic event.
Critical incidents are events that a person experiences which are outside the range of normal human experience that would be markedly distressing to anyone; they have the potential to interfere with one's ability to function at the time of the incident or later.
Critical Incident Stress is stress from any event powerful enough to overcome the normal coping mechanisms of persons exposed to the event.
The CISM Team responds to events that significantly impact emergency service personnel who have experienced a Critical Incident Stress.
We are a team of caring and compassionate members trained to help others through tough situations
