First Responder Summit


In collaboration with the Ohio Fire Academy, Ohio Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS) would like to invite all first responders to attend a one-day, First Responder Summit: Wellness, Self-Care and Resilience. (Schedule below.)

This online summit will take place on Wednesday, August 26, 2020, from 8:00 am until 4:15 pm. Ohio EMA Director Sima Merick will provide the opening keynote address regarding partnerships and collaboration. A number of topics will be covered, including assisting first responder families, building relationships between the first responder community, mental health resources in your area, and more. The summit is targeted to first responders - law enforcement, fire service, EMS, dispatch, and corrections.  
There is no cost to attend. You may register in advance if you have a State Fire Academy account or you can join the day of the summit through the links below:
