Support Mechanisms for Staff

In addition to peer and management support, the agency will use its Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP) to provide psychosocial supports for staff during and after an incident, as needed. Staff should be reminded that these supports are available at the beginning of an incident response and during the response. The Human Resources Group Leader will coordinate group meetings on-site and ensure other supports are in place as needed. The availability of these supports will be communicated to staff through the Communications Officer.
