CISM/TERN Washtenaw County
Emergency Services - Critical Incident Stress Management
Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) & Traumatic Events Response Network (TERN)
Who are we? We are a group of volunteer behavior health professionals and peers who respond to groups in the community and safety service agencies after a traumatic event
The CISM/TERN team responds after traumatic incidents to first responder groups, (police, fire, EMS, dispatch) as well as to public events (neighborhoods,work places, etc.)
Examples of when to call? What is a traumatic event? Any incident that causes an individual to experience unusually strong emotional reactions which have the potential to interfere with their ability to function either at the scene or later.If a coworker passed away tragically or unexpectantly at work, If a child were to suddenly and unexpectantly pass away. Or other instances would be the like the Boston Marathon Bombing, or twin tower event from 911. These teams would be very useful in helping someone, or a group of people process and deal with an event of this nature.
Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) is a multi-component crisis preparedness and intervention program. CISM is not: therapy, a tactical review, or a disciplinary tool.
How can I contact the team to ask for a response?
Call Washtenaw Metro Dispatch at 734-994-2911 and request a CISM or TERN response. They will contact the on call person and have them call you back.
