County Grievance Counselors Provide Aid in Aztec


Four firefighters from the Bernalillo County Fire Department (BCFD) are in Aztec, N.M. to assist local personnel with grievance counseling in the wake of the recent tragedy.

The BCFD firefighters arrived yesterday and are counseling teachers, parents, first responders and others in need through the afternoon. Officials in Aztec requested BCFD’s support for counseling services.

BCFD is a member of the Metro Peer Support Team, a group of Bernalillo County-area first responders available to provide counseling assistance to cities and towns across New Mexico. Team members also in Aztec are Rio Rancho Fire & Rescue, the Albuquerque Fire Department and Albuquerque Ambulance.

The Metro Peer Support Team started in 2016, and has since assisted multiple municipalities. BCFD firefighters, as team members, provided grievance counseling in Clovis, N.M. in August after tragedy there.
