California Fire Service Leaders Propose Path Forward for Behavioral Health

Late last year, CPF, Cal-Chiefs and the California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee convened a joint Behavioral Health Conference in Sacramento.

Today, California Professional Firefighters President Lou Paulson and California Fire Chiefs Association President Mike DuRee released a joint statement, outlining a series of proposals the California fire service should take to address the issue of behavioral health.
