Critical Incident Stress Debriefing

Troy Powell, Chairman

Every day, firefighters face many dangers in the course of performing their jobs. Risks such as burns, building collapse and hazardous chemical exposure are recognized as the most deadly physical hazards associated with the job. Firefighters are also exposed to another hazard that is not readily apparent to persons outside the firefighting community. This hazard is a silent killer that affects each individual differently. It is stress caused by exposure to tragedies such as burn deaths, serious injuries and horrific situations.
