We keep challenges from turning into crises
NJ Fire & EMS Lifeline, housed at the Rutgers University Behavioral Health Care National Call Center, is a one-of-a-kind peer support network. Originally offering and providing support as part of the Cop2Cop peer support helpline, today NJ Fire & EMS Lifeline operates a separate but collaborative peer support helpline designed specifically for all New Jersey Firefighters and Emergency Medical Services Personnel, and their families. We are committed to ensuring that all of these first responders and their families have access to a peer who better understands their life experiences and the challenges they face, and can provide support whenever they confront an issue.
Regardless of the complexity of the issue, or how long it takes, we will continue to follow up, seek out possible avenues, and pursue different options. We go the extra mile.
