Building First Responder Resiliency - Improve Mental Health for First Responders and their Families

I am excited to share a new tool that was promoted by the American Ambulance Association, to support first responders mental, emotional, and physical wellness. This tool was vetted out by several members of our Employee Engagement Committee who felt it was a good free resource for our team here!

“Responder Strong is a collaboration between emergency responders and their advocates. Its mission is to improve mental health supports for emergency responders and their families through joint focuses on intervention and prevention. The site serves as a resource map for responder-informed crisis and clinical services as well as easily accessible educational content and tools for responders, their families, their leaders and the clinicians who work with them. ResponderStrong has also created custom educational content regarding relationships, stress management, and resiliency in response to community needs assessments.”

The website is here: https://you.responderstrong.org/

It takes just a few minutes to create a profile and take an assessment quiz to see where your baselines are, and then it directly links you to support content in the areas where you might not be operating at your best. Topics include work life balance,  leading and following, finances, professional development, tactical performance, and higher education with tons of content within. Lets learn something new today!

In a press conference on 7/1/2020, Governor Cuomo encouraged all New Yorkers to get tested for COVID-19, as the state now has the resources to accommodate individuals who were not previously listed as priority subjects. This means any individual, even if they are aysmptomatic, can receive testing for the virus.

Executive Order 202.45 - Travel Advisory per NYS Governor Cuomo

By order of Governor Cuomo, anyone traveling to a state (after June 25th) with positive test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents, or higher than a 10% test positivity rate, over a seven day rolling average, and which the commissioner of the department of health has designated as meeting these conditions is required to quarantine for 14 days.

Please note – As we at Monroe are classified as first responders, there are alternate stipulations for returning to work after traveling to any of the impacted states, which we will be following. These requirements are listed below:

- Employee must seek diagnostic testing for COVID-19 as soon as possible (within 24 hours)
- Employee must monitor temperature, social distancing, wear face coverings, clean and disinfect work area for minimum of 14 days
- Employee must avoid extended period in the public, contact with strangers, and large gathers for at least 7 days

On Friday 06/26/2020, the Governor issued Executive Order 202.45 sharing employees who travel voluntarily to any of these states are not eligible for benefits under the New York State emergency paid sick leave law. PLEASE be aware that voluntary travel to any of these states could result in loss of pay during the required quarantine.

The list of impacted states will be updated frequently and can be found on the Department of Health website (https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/covid-19-travel-advisory). As of this morning 6/30/2020, these states are Alabama, Arkansas, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Texas, and Utah.

If you have plans to travel/are returning from an impacted state, please reach out to me directly at kphelps@monroeambulance.com or 585-764-0157 for a personalized return to work plan.

COVID Testing

Essential workers in NYS may now make an appointment to be tested at the MCC COVID drive-through testing facility! Call the COVID-19 hotline at 1-888-364-3065 or make an appointment online at covid19screening.health.ny.gov

Please review the below reminders before scheduling an appointment:

  • If you are asymptomatic, be sure to schedule your testing appointment on a non-work day as wait times vary

  • Also for those that are testing but are asymptomatic, it is expected you will continue to work all scheduled shifts pending your results.  Currently, results should arrive in 3-5 days from test date. Should you test positive for COVID-19, your health team will designate the length of time that you will quarantine.  It is necessary that you submit the required documentation to Monroe. Should your test be negative, no documentation is required to continue working.

  • NO MATTER THE OUTCOME OF YOUR TEST RESULT you will continue to be held to the same PPE standards and precautionary actions as all employees of Monroe Ambulance.

Remember that this test is a snapshot of your COVID status for the moment you were tested. It is not indicative of a previous or future COVID diagnosis, nor should it be assumed that any precautionary actions can change due to your results.

More info can be found HERE
