Psychological Health and Safety in Wildland Firefighting

The current project aims to guide the BC Wildfire Service to accomplish three major objectives relating to psychological health and safety:

  • Leverage the collective knowledge and expertise pertaining to both psychological health and safety and the process of wildland fire intervention program development to mobilize existing knowledge and best practices from neighbouring jurisdictions and associated industries;

  • Audit the psychosocial climate, including assessment of employee experiences and availability and evaluation of existing resources, supports and structures; and,

  • Work with BCWS Organizational Development, Safety and Wellbeing, and Research and Innovation staff to determine how to best implement the findings of this project in the BCWS.
