EAP for Public Safety

Police, Fire, and Emergency Services

Working in law enforcement and emergency and fire management services often results in having to deal with personal and emotionally challenging situations. These can also have a significant effect on an employee’s family. For over 30 years, Ascension EAP has been providing EAP services to law enforcement and emergency and fire management personnel within municipal and county jurisdictions.

Professional, confidential and convenient support for personal concerns that may affect first responders, including issues around home and work life, are a part of the core services provided through EAP. Our Employee Assistance team is composed of counselors with the skills and experience to assist emergency services personnel and their families.
