About Us

Official Peer Group

All matters discussed with our members are 100% confidential and we are committed to bridging the gap that exists between you and a qualified mental health specialist.

Established in 2017, our fire department, led by our Safety and Health Committee with support from Human Resources laid the foundation for a Peer Support Team. Together we can help each other heal the wounds sustained on the job. Who else knows how you are feeling on the inside other than a brother or sister who has walked in your shoes. All matters discussed with our members are 100% confidential and we are committed to bridging the gap that exists between you and a qualified mental health specialist.
