The Creating a Psychologically Healthy Fire Department course is designed to empower fire service leadership to promote and support healthy, high-performing fire/EMS departments.
Based on framework from the Psychologically Healthy Fire Departments (PHFD) initiative, this course focuses on six key practices to facilitate member well-being and department functioning.
Each training participant will receive the PHFD: Implementation Toolkit and the opportunity to make a commitment to create or maintain a psychologically healthy fire department.
