First Responder Toolkit App

  • https://firstrespondertoolkit.com/
  • Developed to help disaster responders of all disciplines to understand and manage their stress. The toolkit that is currently available is a very scaled-down Beta version of the app that will be available later this year. We are pushing out this app now because we believe that it is critical during COVID-19 that responders stay aware of their risk of burnout, compassion fatigue, and traumatic stress so that they can take steps to reduce that risk. The toolkit includes self-assessment checklists, and self-care tips and resources. It is intentionally laid out it a simple format so that highly stressed responders will find the resources simple to use and to understand.
