Boeing has invited a representative from Airline Incident Response Inc. to facilitate initial and recurrent training for CIRP.  The training is a tremendous opportunity to enhance our ability to help our colleagues in times of need.  Boeing is graciously inviting the SETP community to attend the annual training.  Registration for the course is covered. Each individual will need to cover their own travel expenses.

The purpose of Boeing’s Critical Incident Response Program (CIRP) is to mitigate the psychological impact of an incident or accident and aid in the normal recovery from these events before harmful stress reactions affect job performance, careers, families, and health. The CIRP provides pre-incident education and post-incident/accident crisis intervention services. Peer Support Volunteers (PSVs) are flight crew members and engineers specifically trained and certified to provide support in critical incident stress management. ALPA formally implemented this program in 1994 to improve flight safety by assisting crewmembers, accident investigators, and their families following a critical incident or accident. Initiation of the Critical Incident Response Program was a joint project of the Accident Investigation, Aeromedical, Human Performance, Pilot Assistance, and Safety Committees.

Thank you!
