The South Central Pennsylvania CISM Team consists of over 50 volunteers who are trained to debrief or defuse emergency workers after a critical incident. The team is comprised of emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses, first responders, firefighters, sheriffs, police officers, dispatchers, and others with emergency services’ background. These team members serve as peers to their fellow emergency workers who are having difficulty dealing with the stress from a critical incident. The team also includes mental health clinicians who facilitate debriefings and assist with other interventions. Although a stand-alone, non-profit organization, the South Central PA CISM Team is administered through the York County Office of Emergency Management.
