Additional Resources

The 2nd Alarm Project offers behavioral health resources to firefighters (career, volunteer, and retirees) and fire departments in the following counties across the Florida Panhandle: Bay, Calhoun, Dixie, Escambia, Franklin, Gadsden, Gulf, Hamilton, Holmes, Jackson, Jefferson, Liberty, Leon, Madison, Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Suwanee, Taylor, Wakulla, Walton, and Washington.

Our vision is that no firefighter in the Florida Panhandle will face mental health stigma or go without access to evidence-based, first-responder specific behavioral health resources, and that access to these resources will support mission readiness, preserve the force, and improve the long term health of firefighters, families, and retirees.

Our services include offering (1) no-cost, professional tele-counseling services by licensed, first-responder proficient mental health providers, (2) supporting departments in establishing or enhancing capacity of trained peer support teams, (3) providing state of the art mental health literacy materials, and (4) providing leadership development to reduce mental health stigma and promote culture change.
