Employee Assistance Program

This office is responsible for coordinating all activities of the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and Volunteer Assistance Program (VAP).

The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) provides a vital service to the Prince George's County Fire/EMS Department. The program coordinates a wide range of mental health and counseling support functions for the members of the Department as well as their families and all retirees. These services help to ensure a healthy work force both physically and mentally.

Areas of Focus
The key to the success of this program is the dedication of the experienced staff and professional service the EAP provides employee/members in a confidential manner. Each participant receives a comprehensive assessment that guides interventions tailored to suit the needs of the individual.
