PTSD Presumptive Legislation Discussions on CJOB

February 3, 2015

To: All Members of Local 867

From: Alex Forrest, President


Please listen to CJOB on February 5th from 1:30 to 2:30 when Alex Forrest, Ed Wiebe, Chad Swayze and Derek Balcaen will be on the Dalia Kurtz show.  They will be discussing Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).


This is part of our overall strategy of educating the public on the need to have Presumptive Legislation passed for PTSD.  This will provide easier access to financial and other support for Fire Fighters, Police Officers and Ambulance Paramedics.


We have been working hard on this for more than three years and we are close to having this legislation passed in the Province of Manitoba.


We ask all Captains to use this as a drill session opportunity.
