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 about how 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 at PublicSafetyEAP.com.


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.
