What is the On-Site centre?
It is a residential five-day critical incident stress program. We serve emergency services workers in distress. Our program is for all firefighter, law enforcement, or EMS personnel who are temporarily overwhelmed by the stress of their job, what they have witnessed, or what they have experienced.

What does the On-site Centre do?
The first program of its type in Canada, we offer critical incident stress debriefing (CISD) training, individual and group counselling, as well as peer support. Qualified staff consisting of advanced-trained peers, licensed clinicians (CISD trained), national trauma consultants and support staff can help you back to work, or towards a new beginning, with the personal tools necessary to master critical incident stress.

Who should use the services?
Emergency service providers from across the country experiencing critical incident stress or post-trauma reactions where debriefing or individual counselling has not been sufficient. Some signs of insufficiency could include, but are not limited to, appetite and sleep disturbances, nausea, anxiety, dizziness and interruptions in intimacy.

While emergency service professionals have extraordinarily high coping abilities, certain types of incidents (line of duty death/injury, loss of a child, victim known to responder, mass casualty) can evoke strong emotional reactions at the scene, or later, which can overwhelm even the most experienced veteran. It is important to always remember that no matter what uniform is being worn, the person wearing it is first, and foremost, a human being.
