Company Officers: Front Line Leaders For Mental Wellness

The most vital responsibility of company officers is the safety and well-being of the firefighters in their command. Our guest, Battalion Chief Cristian Hinojosa of Dallas Fire-Rescue was recently promoted from Captain, and talks about why he’s passionate about mental health for firefighters.

As a leader/officer/supervisor, how do we recognize when one of our members is struggling with a mental health problem and needs help? What are some signals indicating they might need help? We discuss how a company officer can approach a member to talk about their crisis, and to take action to get them help.

Chief Hinojosa talks about tools and techniques that have worked for him as a company officer and leader of Dallas Fire Department’s second-largest employee association, including best practices on how to follow up and ensure the member is getting help and improving.
