  • IAFF Peer Support Class October 21-22 in Missoula, MT

    Brothers and Sisters, 

    Please let us welcome you to reserve your seat for the upcoming IAFF Peer Support Training held in Missoula, MT October 21-22, 2019. Missoula Rural Firefighter's Local # 2457 have been selected to host the event which will be facilitated by IAFF Health and Wellness professionals for the two-day workshop. Read the excerpt below as taken from the IAFF Peer Support Training Information Guide.

    "The stresses faced by fire service members throughout the course of their careers – multiple casualty events, violence, injury to children and the inherent dangers of firefighting – can have a cumulative impact on mental health and well-being. Peer support programs have been demonstrated to be an effective method for providing support to occupational groups, including fire fighters.”

    After completing the IAFF training, members will become IAFF Trained Peer Supporters and have the necessary

    knowledge and skills to provide support to their peers; educate brothers and sisters about behavioral health (e.g., PTSD and resilience); serve as a bridge to behavioral health programs and community resources; and build or enhance their peer support programs.

    Curriculum

    To lay a foundation for the IAFF Peer Support Training, participants must complete the online IAFF Behavioral Health Awareness Course. The two-hour course is self-paced and tailored for the fire service. A link will be emailed to participants in advance so that they can complete the course prior to the live training.

    Subsequently, members participate in the two-day interactive course taught by experienced peers from the fire service and behavioral health clinicians. The IAFF Peer Support Training curriculum focuses on active listening skills, suicide awareness and prevention, crisis intervention, referrals to local resources and relationships with local behavioral health providers. Participants also learn how to build an effective peer program.

    Instructors use small group learning methods and skill-building exercises to encourage student participation and mastery of the material."

    Local #2457 would like to thank all of you in advance for your interest in this useful course. Montana based participants will attend this course free of registration costs but will be individually responsible for lodging and transportation expenses. Please use the links provided to register for the course and book lodging if necessary, at the Holiday Inn Downtown Missoula at a discounted rate. If you have any questions or difficulties please contact us directly at the number and email address listed below.
