This flexible set of tools is used to care for stress reactions in firefighters and rescue personnel. Unlike other acute stress management procedures, Stress First Aid (SFA) was designed specifically to support firefighters and rescue personnel. The goal of Stress First Aid is to restore health and readiness after a stress reaction. Stress First Aid is a toolkit that emphasizes the importance of continuously monitoring the stress of fire and rescue personnel and to quickly recognize and appropriately help individuals who are reacting to stress and are in need of interventions to promote healing. SFA monitors the progress of recovery to ensure a return to full-function. Stress First Aid fosters strong leadership and unit cohesion. Stress First Aid is individualized to meet the needs of each person in each context; there are no one-size-fits-all SFA solutions.
