WOUNDED WARRIORS CANADA PARTNERS WITH EDMONTON FIRE RESCUE SERVICES

We’re pleased to announce a partnership with Edmonton Fire Rescue Services. The programs and services Wounded Warriors Canada offers will provide one more layer of mental health service and support for the fire personnel who serve the Edmonton community as well as their families.

 
“Everyone experiences and addresses mental health differently. This is why it is important that our employees have access to as many mental health resources as possible,” said Edmonton Fire Chief Joe Zatylny. “This partnership is a great step forward for both of our organizations in breaking down barriers for first responders that need access to mental health support.”
 
“Given the complexities of operational stress injuries, we know that no single organization can represent the 100 per cent solution when it comes to the mental health and wellness of its members and their families,” said Scott Maxwell, Executive Director of Wounded Warriors Canada.  “This is why partnerships are vital. Together, we are working to break down barriers to accessing culturally appropriate mental health care while reducing stigma for those who serve our country at home and abroad. To that end, we look forward to working with the team at Edmonton Fire Rescue Services in the months and years to come.”
