Review for Emergency Ministries, Spring, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served on the board of Emergency Ministries for 10 plus years and have witnessed a tremendous need to support our first responders. Emergency Ministries provides a much needed service to first responders...a service that many of them don't even realize they need. First reponders see so much trauma that it effects the quality of their lives in a very personal way. This is where Emergency ministries and Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) comes in to play. Without a healthy method for debriefing, stress that first reponders experience builds up. Anyone who has ever experienced stress understands that eventually that stress has to be released. This release can take many different forms, even to the point of becoming life threatening. By applying proven techniques such as CISM, Emergency Ministries provides a much needed service to first responders and their families. Emergency Ministries is just beginning to reach new heights and needs your support more than ever. Visit www.emergencyministries.org to learn how you can help those who help you.
