Local 440 Peer Support Resources

Need Immediate Help?
Call/Text 988

Available 24 hours a day

If you are having a crisis and are in need of immediate assistance, please contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline.

Members of the Local 440 Peer Support Team have all received IAFF training. Our Peer Support Team provides assistance to active and retired firefighters experiencing behavioral health issues.

Your Peer Support Team is available to assist our members after potentially traumatic events or need emotional and mental health support which can include substance abuse counseling. They can suggest local, regional, state, and national behavioral health resources. Research shows that firefighters are more likely to accept treatment recommendations and assistance from peers.
