  • First Respondents and Handling Critical Incident Stress

    6 pages in length. Reaction to critical incidents, such as tragedies, deaths, serious injuries, hostage and/or threatening situations, require the human being to respond in a way that intensifies the inherent stress related to Emergency Medical Services (EMS). Those within the rescue field are prone to inordinate levels of stress over and above many other professions; as a result, extremely traumatic or overwhelming situations sometimes spawn a damaging psychological reaction called Critical Incident Stress. Those who are involved with events that are far more serious than others will attend Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) as a means by which to diffuse some of the internal emotional buildup caused by post-traumatic stress, but sometimes that is not enough to address the extent to which an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or firefighter is suffering.
