ABC7: San Francisco- Today Mayor London Breed announced a proposal for a new street response team that will provide medical and social service help for people who require immediate assistance, but do not have emergent behavioral health care needs.
This proposal is part the City’s effort to “implement alternatives to police responses to non-violent calls.”
Police Foundation: The National Police Foundation is pleased to announce the National First Responder COVID-19 Grant Relief Program. This program will allow first responders and survivors of first responders an opportunity to request a grant to reimburse select COVID-19 related expenses, such as mental health and wellness costs (i.e. counseling services, suicide prevention), unanticipated dependent care, disinfecting services, and similar costs. These microgrants may be awarded in an amount up to $1,000.
Never quit! We should be able to enjoy a long healthy career as first responders. It’s a hard job, but commit not to quit just because its hard.
