The Peer Resource Team is a peer-nominated group of Toronto Paramedic Services’ staff from various roles throughout the Division who volunteer their time to provide confidential short-term peer-to-peer support for their colleagues following challenging incidents/situations and during times of personal stress. Members of the Peer Resource Team possess additional training including psychological first aid and can provide assistance to individual staff members as well as general response to large-scale or critical incidents. If the situation requires a greater level of support, they have the ability to refer their colleagues to additional available support services as appropriate. The Peer Resource Team is considered a Special Operations Team and therefore reports directly to the District 5 Commander when working in that role.
