The Firefighters Support Foundation (FSF) has released its newest free video program, Interacting With the Mentally Ill at Emergency Scenes.  The focus of the program is on obtaining time-critical information in short time frames during the chaos of any emergency scene – fire, EMS, law enforcement, etc.  This approximately 30-minute video program is presented by Dr. Greg Sancier, Ph.D, a 30+ year police officer, hostage negotiator, and well-known public safety psychologist. Dr. Sancier explains how to identify a mentally ill person, describes why they require different communication tactics than we usually employ at these critical events, and outlines a 5-step process for communicating and interacting effectively with them. 

Like all FSF programs, this program is free to all public safety professionals.  Simply go to to download your copy.
