By Tom Carr, VP Patrol Operations (tom.carr@skipatrol.ca)

To increase our critical incident stress management (CISM) programs and resources, we are adding a person with a mental health background to the national CISM portfolio to ensure the CSP considers patrollers’ mental health.

This person will work with the divisions and zones to utilize CISM team members skills normally accessed after a traumatic event throughout the year. They will be asked to guide the development of programs and education tools so that patrollers and CSP leaders can work with CISM teams to better understand the importance of mental health and identify some of the flags to look for. Our goal is to work to reduce the stresses of individuals by helping members and leaders better understand what to look for and how to help.

If you are interested in this important role, take a look at the job description. Please contact VP Patrol Operations at tom.carr@skipatrol.ca if you have any questions.
