Survive First Participates in Florida’s PCIS

We are excited to announce that Survive First has joined forces with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement for their Post Critical Incident Seminar (PCIS) program.  We are truly honored to be part of this crucial program aimed at supporting officers who have experienced critical incidents or accumulated trauma throughout their careers.

PCIS is a peer-based program that provides a safe and supportive environment for officers and their spouses to process their experiences and learn healthy coping strategies. These seminar feature peer-to-peer assistance, complemented by clinical staff to guide participants towards effective stress management techniques.

Following the success of the first seminar held in March, we were excited to come together again for PCIS number two this month.  Doug and Karen Monda of Survive First had the distinct honor to stand before their peers and present “Fortifying the First Responder Marriage Through Resilience.” This insightful session explores strategies for building resilience within first responder marriages, emphasizing the importance of support, communication, and self-care.

The PCIS seminar offers a unique opportunity for officers and their significant others to gain education on trauma, patterns of resolution, and evidence-based coping strategies that promote recovery and resilience. We are grateful to be part of this important initiative and look forward to making a positive impact on the lives of first responders and their families. Together, we can continue to support and empower those who dedicate their lives to serving others.  

Check back in the coming weeks for the announcement of the third PCIS, scheduled for this October.  This program is saving lives.
