What is Peer Support? 

Welcome to Colorado's 911 Peer Support website! We are here to provide a safe, empathetic, and supportive space for all dispatchers, emergency responders, and their families. At times, the nature of our work can be incredibly challenging and emotionally demanding. That's why we believe in the power of peer support. Our mission is to connect you with a community of individuals who truly understand the unique experiences and pressures you face every day.

We aspire to offer a range of resources, including informative articles, self-care tips, and coping strategies, to assist you in maintaining your mental and emotional well-being. Our goal is to foster a supportive network where you can find solace, encouragement, and the tools you need to thrive both personally and professionally.

The group recognizes the need to be available to their peers who may need assistance after a critical incident in which they were involved, grief counseling, stress management and other life challenges. Provide training to new employees offering techniques to avoid "burn out" as a result of this profession. Peer supporters are call takers, dispatchers, supervisors, civilian, and sworn. They are NOT psychologists, doctors, lawyers, counselors, etc. They are the gateway to resources that are vetted, culturally appropriate, and serve as subject matter experts for agency-specific resources.
