Program Information:

In an effort to continually improve service delivery to emergency responders and the agencies they represent, the Western New York Stress Reduction Program has recently revised its pre -incident education program. The program now provides more information regarding various types of stress, stress management and the specialized interventions offered by trained peer and mental health volunteers.

For those recertifying their NYS EMS Certification by CME, this presentation qualifies for the mandatory two, non core, contact hours of mental health for the EMT.

We know that psychological preparedness helps responders manage acute stress symptoms that occur following exposure to significant events. Pre -incident education is an excellent tool for promoting mental, physical and emotional wellness.

If you are interested in having a member of the WNYSRP speak to your group, please contact either of us listed above or e-mail Tom at, and we will work with you to schedule a mutually agreed upon date and time. The presentation is very flexible and every effort will be made to ensure it meets the needs of your department.

Thank you for your attention. I encourage you to take advantage of this training opportunity.
