Our thanks to Dave McLennan, a retired police officer and founder of Boots On The Ground, a non-profit, volunteer organization providing safe and confidential peer support to First Responders – Police Officers, Firefighters, EMS and Corrections Officers - impacted by the exposure to trauma in their positions. 

Last Thursday, Dave spoke about the development and implementation of the Boots On The Ground program. He outlined the services presently being offered and their vision for the future of this organization.  This dedicated team will soon be providing confidential Peer Support 24/7 to First Responders across the Province.  Full details of the organization can be found on their website -- www.bootsontheground.ca.
