Special Districts Association of
Oregon (SDAO) and Special Districts Insurance Services (SDIS) are pleased to
announce that we have partnered with Oregon State Fire Fighters Council to
offer an employee assistance program (EAP) to all career professional fire
fighters in the state of Oregon free of charge.
This EAP is offered through
Public Safety EAP A division of ESI and is specifically designed for
emergency responders and fire professionals. The program offers up to six
in-person counseling sessions per year and utilizes mental health professionals
that specialize in fire and EMS issues.
Please review the program
flyer explaining the benefits offered as well as a flyer with information
to access services. We encourage you to use these to communicate with your
career professional fire fighters about this new opportunity. Public Safety EAP
has also developed a great
video explaining the benefits available.
Your district's career
professional fire fighters and their dependents have immediate access to
these program services and benefits. There is no waiting period. If help is
needed, all it takes is a simple phone call to 1-888-327-1060 or visit online
In the coming months,
your volunteers and other staff will also be eligible to participate in the
Public Safety EAP for a reduced rate, at the district's expense. Please watch
for an announcement from us with more information.
