For Immediate Support

Capt. Sean Power - 914-291-3277

Firefighter Keith O'Dowd - 914-383-5688

Capt. Power and FF O’Dowd are available to you 24/7 to act as a conduit for getting in contact for these and all therapists but this list is specifically for the occasion that you can neither wait nor do you need us to intercede for you, and the trauma/PTSD you are currently experiencing needs to be addressed ASAP.

If you are unsure of whether or not you could fall under the “PTSD“ label there is a checklist that Westchester Trauma Recovery Network puts out called the Public Safety Checklist that will accompany this information. If you can check “yes” for at least three on this list you need to get support:

If you are experiencing PTSD and cannot wait to talk to a therapist, dial 9-8-8 for the 24/7 crisis/suicide hotline or 1-800-273-8255 or text “HOME” or “GOT5” to 741741 for crisis text line.

Drug/Alcohol primary with Mental Health help not as the primary


Fire fighters go about their jobs with a supreme sense of confidence – a trait that allows them to go above and beyond to keep our residents safe. But that feeling of invincibility sometimes allows fire fighters to bottle up too much of their emotions without knowing how to deal with them. The Yonkers Fire Wellness Support Team is here to assist our members and their families by providing them with information and direction to resolve emotionally charged matters. Our trained peer supporters are available to help in a confidential setting at any time – day or night.

The Yonkers Fire Wellness Support Team is here to assist you and your family with anything you need including, but not limited to:

  • Feeling tired, overwhelmed, or confused
  • Home doesn't feel like home
  • Relationship or marriage struggles
  • Dependence on alcohol
  • Feeling alone
  • Losing hope
  • Losing a loved one
  • Feeling like nobody understands what you're going through
  • Not knowing why you feel the way you do

We're here to be your confidential ear. Sometimes all it takes is for someone to listen to you and validate the thoughts and feelings you may be dealing with to make you feel a little better. What you are going through could be your body's natural response. It might not be YOU, it could be just science. The conversations between you and the peer supporter will remain STRICTLY CONFIDENTIAL. The Yonkers Fire Wellness Support Team can offer professional resources, support groups, or even other fire fighters and their family members who have dealt with similar situations.
