Critical Incident Stress Debriefing


A Critical Incident Stress Debriefing (CISD) is an intervention using a group format to provide professional help within 72 hours of a major incident. It is designed to minimize stress related injury to emergency personnel (fire, police, emergency medical services, disaster, and hospital emergency department).

Critical Incident Stress Debriefings (CISD) are held shortly following an incident in the nearest appropriate place (ambulance station, firehall, etc.) All responders who had been involved in the incident (but only those involved) are invited to attend.

The Western New York Stress Reduction Program provides trained, experienced debriefing teams for each session.
