The mental and emotional challenges brought about by a career on public safety’s front lines are at the center of a new investigative report.
NBC Bay Area News has reported the first of what’s expected to be several reports on PTSD and behavioral health challenges in the fire service.
The report, which aired last night (May 16th) 11:00pm news, includes the results of a survey of area firefighters developed in cooperation with CPF and its Bay Area affiliates. More than 700 individuals responded to the survey.
This past December, CPF and Cal-Chiefs hosted the nation’s first joint labor-management conference on firefighter behavioral health. CPF-sponsored legislation introduced in Sacramento (AB 1116) establishes peer support counseling services for firefighters and strengthens confidentiality provisions to protect the privacy of those who seek help.
