Firefighting is an inherently dangerous job that all volunteers understand. In recent years there has been a recognition of the mental health strains individuals can be exposed to and the importance of bringing these to the forefront.
This website has been designed and implemented to support mental health awareness for Volunteer Fire Fighters within East Hants and provide tools along with contact information for those who may need some assistance.
With the help of a Provincial grant for a Mental Health & Wellness Program, along with assistance from our partners at VFIS, Homewood MAP, CISM, and the Municipality of East Hants we have been able to provide this site along with the various video content and print media pieces to increase its impact and accessibility for all our members.
For those outside of our fire service we have also provided some links to our member departments as well as a Recruitment page for anyone interested in joining our Professional Volunteer Firefighting community.
