impacting emergency service personnel, in combination with the
challenges presented by the current economy, serve to remind the CISM

you find yourself, a co-worker, spouse or family member in need of our
services in response to
a critical incident, our team of dedicated and skilled volunteer
emergency services peers and mental health professionals are available

Chief Paul Stubbs and the Cleveland Fire Department recognize the
importance of the CC-CISM team. The
CC-CISM team received the Chief's Award at the Cleveland Fire
Department's annual awards ceremony on October 8, 2009 in the Cleveland
City Council chambers. The award recognized the important long standing
relationship of our organization with the fire department.
Who we are
The CC-CISM team is made up of
volunteers from the mental health and the emergency services
professions. Peers from Law Enforcement, Fire Service, and Emergency
Medical Services are all represented on the CC-CISM team. The unique
collaboration between skilled peers and mental health professionals is
the foundation of the organization and produces a high level of
integrity and acceptance within the emergency services community.
