Peer Support

Peer support is the heart of a resilient first responder organization. The 2nd Alarm Project supports departments in building peer support teams, facilitates initial training and continuing education for members, and assists with clinical direction and oversight of teams.

Our professional staff work to ensure team members in our region have access to the tools and resources needed to carry out their vital role. We partner with several established, first responder-proficient, evidence-based organizations to deliver training and continuing education (see our acknowledgements page for more info). 2nd Alarm Project also offers additional training to prepare peer team members to serve as peer navigators, assisting fellow first responders to identify and obtain needed external resources. We are equipped to respond to a variety of critical incidents/disasters that may occur within our region, including deploying trained peer team members and licensed clinicians in certain situations and linking up with statewide resources for deployments to larger multi-region events. Contact us for more information on our peer support capacity building initiatives or critical incident response.
