Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM)
Members, Call the American Ambulance Association for Backup
AAA Critical Incident Stress Management provides onsite support for TEAMS overcoming trauma and grief at your ambulance service following a traumatic incident.
AAA understands EMS represents the best of humanity at the worst of times. Sometimes our people need help processing after a staff fatality, natural disaster, active shooter, traumatic accident, or other extremely stressful incident. AAA can help.
To return employees to healthy and productive functioning after a traumatic event, a licensed counselor will arrive at your location to provide clinically appropriate interventions. Our expert will guide employees and managers through their normal reactions to abnormal events. These specialists are trained specifically in work issues, management consultation, workplace violence, threat assessment and crisis management.
When a traumatic incident occurs, please complete the form below for access to timely and compassionate support onsite at your location. Clinical guidelines suggest that the best time to conduct a CISM session is 72 hours after the incident occurs.
