Community Critical Incident Support Information

Community Critical Incident Support Information


You have been through a very trying and critical event. You may experience some strong emotional or physical reactions in response to this event that have the potential to interfere with your ability to function as you usually do. This is normal and very common to experience personal “aftershocks” from a traumatic event. “Aftershocks” or stress reactions may occur immediately after the incident or may be delayed until days, weeks, or months later. Sometimes a particular incident is so emotionally painful, a person cannot cope with experiences on their own. Professional assistance may be required.

These are community resources that may help you make sense of what you experienced and be able to heal from it.

For any immediate medical emergency, please call 9-1-1 or go to your nearest emergency room.

For any immediate crisis and if you wish to speak with a crisis counselor, please call the 24-hour crisis hotline at 2-1-1.
