Welcome to the Laramie Fire Department Employee Assistance Program
The City of Laramie has established a special program to assist LFD employees and their family members. This is an additional benefit that supplements your health insurance and the existing EAP program for City employees by providing confidential access to mental health professionals who have experience with and a special interest in working with emergency services personnel.Everyday stressors, as well as some of the unique stressors and difficulties involved in emergency work, can affect our lives and have a real impact on our well-being. We want to help provide resources so that LFD staff members can quickly and conveniently, and in complete privacy, get in touch with a qualified provider who stands ready to assist with any emotional or psychological issue.
The Employee Assistance Program provides access to a network of specially selected mental health professionals practicing in Laramie and Cheyenne who have experience in assisting first responders and those who have experienced psychological trauma.
LFD employees will be provided with up to three hours of services annually. Family members are encouraged to access services with our providers employing their insurance benefits. To access services, simply select a provider and email or call them directly. You do not need a referral from anyone else, and you may remain anonymous. If you prefer to see your provider for longer than three meetings, you may use your health insurance program to continue services (each of our providers will accept the program).
