This site serves as a resource for all public safety workers throughout the State of Oregon. Whether you are a police officer, firefighter, 9-1-1 dispatcher, corrections deputy, jailer, state corrections officer, parole & probation officer, paramedic, chaplain, etc., if you are looking for stress management resources or support, this is a good place to start.
The State of Oregon is geographically vast. Although the Willamette Valley has easy access to public safety support, far reaching areas do not. The multiple tragedies in law enforcement between 2011 and 2012, including the murders of three peace officers, the attempt murder of another, public safety suicides, etc., have stretched thin even the areas with substantial support. There is an obvious and immediate need for resources and support. You will find them here – it is up to you whether you use them.
The site content is maintained by public safety workers from throughout the state who do their best to provide the most current and relevant resources available to first responders in need. The site is not perfect, but it is a start. If you cannot find what you are looking for locally, reach out to one of the national resources provided.
