We are pleased to announce American Medical Response of CT (AMR/CT) is partnering with K9FR to provide support for their employees.
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers deal with more stressors than most. Their work culture teaches them to compartmentalize and move on to the next patient… the next call. If they didn’t, no one would last long.
What happens when the stress becomes too much? When that one call “tips” the scales and compartmentalization just doesn’t work?
K9 First Responders is an option as a precursor or an adjunct to Employee Assistance Programs (EAP). AMR has seen the benefits of this approach and offers it as an option for their employees. We are proud to be of service.
