Support 1
Support 1 is a 501 (C) 3 Non-Profit Organization that provides post critical incident stress management training and CISM services to emergency first responders.
Our programs are designed to assist emergency first responders with organized training and additional funding for departmental needs before, during, and after critical incidents. Since many departmental budgets are not prepared to provide funding for these services, Support 1 will obtain funding through donations and fundraising events to assist these departments.
Stress Management
Critical incidents can cause an overwhelming amount of stress on the Emergency First Responder. In preparation for these events, stress management should be the primary focus. With the various programs and types of training available, Support 1 would utilize funds to help promote and assist in organizing these training needs.
We Fill the Gap
The response of a department greatly affects how an Emergency First Responder and their family cope with a critical incident. For example, a department should provide specific needs to those impacted during this time. These needs require additional funding not included in the normal operating budget.
Our Mission
It is vital that our Emergency First Responders needs are met before, during, and after critical incidents. They should return to duty without the additional stress and focus on the performance of their duties. The financial assistance, training, and counseling provided by Support 1 will enable the department and the Emergency First Responders to maintain a successful quality of performance.
