The Saratoga County Peer Support Team (SCPST) was organized in November 2022 to support all Saratoga County law enforcement, fire, and EMS departments. The team, currently numbering 60 members, combines resources from multiple PSTs with clinical expertise from the Saratoga County Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. Team members provide individual offsite meetings with department member for a “check-in and check-up” on issues of concern, with an opportunity for referral to formal counseling services if needed. Following critical incidents, the PST is available to meet with members and agency leaders for group activities targeted at protecting the resilience of each responder involved. Our team is looking to grow. We are especially interested in recruiting more fire service members.  To grow and develop the PST, the Saratoga County EMS Council will sponsor four ICISF (International Critical Incident Stress Foundation) certification courses this fall.  Click here for dates/times and registration information.PST Training 2023
