First responders are under increasing pressure due to critical incident events in our country and worldwide.  On a daily basis they deal with crisis, disaster, and critical incident stress from either a singular horrific incident or the cumulative effect over days, weeks, months, and years of emergency services to our citizens.  This can have a devastating effect on the health and wellbeing of these valuable members of our society that help keep us safe and secure in the communities we live, work, and play in.

The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc. (ICISF) is “Helping Save the Heroes” by providing pre-incident education to address the mental health concerns of those who respond to disaster and crises. ICISF aims to promote and maintain standards in the specific field of crisis intervention. We are in the forefront of delivering quality Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) training through a variety of educational opportunities geared specifically towards the individuals and communities we serve.

You can help these first responders.  By sponsoring one of our Education & Training programs, you are helping first responders (Firefighters, Paramedics/EMT’s, Police Officers, and Dispatchers) obtain vital training in dealing with critical incident stress and provide them with the ability to help others in the communities they serve.  Help us help first responders in your neighboring communities and worldwide!
