The mission of the Peer Support Program (PSP) is to offer confidential assistance and support to all Local 22 members and their families, during times of personal need or due to traumatic incidents. The PSP augments the Local’s and PFD’s Employee Assistance Program (EAP) but does not replace psychological treatment. The objective of the PSP is to minimize psychological trauma that Local 22 members and their families may experience throughout their career and render assistance in an attempt to accelerate normal recovery to abnormal events, some of which are unique to Firefighters and EMS providers.
