ABSTRACT
The article offers advice on how to keep members of fire departments free from stress and for the organization to run smoothly. Management needs to provide an effective mechanism of release to develop a sincere partnership with the group's leadership. A communication bridge between the department's line officers and the counselor needs to be created, which is built on trust and confidentiality. Moreover, an effective mental health program also needs to be established.
