    The New Volunteer Orientation Program was developed by the Recruitment and Retention Committee of WCFR to highlight the need for volunteers in Fire and EMS Services.  This program will provide an overview of the entire Department of Fire and Rescue Services and will discuss the challenges the new volunteer will face through the training process, emergency response and continued involvement in the volunteer service.  The "new" volunteer will learn from his/her peer's new and innovative ways to overcome the challenges that often result in the loss of a volunteer firefighter or EMT.

    During the course, the new volunteer will learn the training progression of Fire, EMS, and Driver certifications and the requirements and commitments of each.

    Firefighter Stress First Aid (SFA) recognizes quickly those individuals who are reacting to a wide range of stressors in their work and personal lives, and are in need of interventions to promote healing. SFA offers a spectrum of one-on-one or group interventions to ensure safety, reduce the risk for more severe stress reactions and to promote recovery. SFA monitors the progress of recovery to ensure return to full function and well-being. SFA bridges individuals to higher levels of care as needed. SFA training discusses the principles of peer teams in the fire service and how they can be organized to promote healing. This part of the new model for Firefighter Behavioral Health may be the most important as fire departments adapt to new ways of supporting firefighters.
