The following information, put out by the Fire service, is provided for you information. Greg Lee (National Committee member) has been involved with the CIPSS team to further develop this support service.

The Critical Incident and Personal Stress Support (CIPSS) programme is being rolled out across the New Zealand Fire Service and National Rural Fire Authority. CIPSS promotes a range of options to support the psychological wellbeing and resilience of all NZFS personnel. This support includes Region Safety Wellbeing Coordinators, Peer Support, the Injury Management Unit and referral to external providers.

CIPSS presentations have been provided at Region management team meetings, Region Volunteer Leadership Conferences and are now being rolled out to Officers and Firefighters.

Two of the resources developed to support the programme include the Staying Well Guide and Managing your Wellbeing brochure and are both available on FireNet - http://firenet.fire.org.nz/Critical-Incident-and-Personal-Stress-Support-(CIPSS)/Pages/default.aspx.
