Welcome to the Northern Rockies CISM Support Website.

Sometimes Incident personnel experience stress reactions because of a particularly traumatic event, or because of the cumulative effect of stressful events. Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) is specifically designed to reduce the negative impact of the critical incident and to accelerate recovery to normal from an abnormal event. The Northern Rockies Critical Incident Stress Team is led by Peers who are current or former agency employees with strong fire backgrounds. Mental health professionals who have had experience working with Fire Personnel are also part of the team and are available to oversee and advise.
