The Importance of Critical Incident Appointments with an FMRT Psychologist
INSIGHTS FROM OUR CEO
Critical incidents, such as shootings, accidents, and other traumatic events, are common in public safety and can profoundly impact the mental and physical health of the persons involved. FMRT is here to help! Leaders must continue to prioritize the mental health of their officers and provide them with the necessary support and resources to cope with the aftermath of critical incidents.
The FMRT Group recommends that those directly involved be scheduled a 1:1 session within 48-72 hours of the incident and have a three-month follow-up with a culturally competent psychologist. FMRT provides specialized services for employees’ mental health maintenance, including wellness appointments and resilience training. By working with FMRT, safety-sensitive employers can offer their employees tools to cope with the stressors of their job and assist them during critical events.
When you require a wellness appointment or want more information about wellness guidance, please call us at 336-761-0764, and one of our client support team members will assist you.
Thank you again for putting your trust in FMRT!

Reminder: Automated F-3
As a reminder, we offer an automated NC F-3 for NC departments, which can be easily accessible through the FMRT Online portal. If your agency has been using the paper form and would like to begin utilizing the automated version, please follow the instructions below:
- Use this link: www.ncf3.com/.
- Sign up for an account if you do not already have one.
- Click on either “Police F-3”, “Sheriff F-3”, or “PHS.”
- On the next page, enter the last four digits of your SSN and then click “continue.”
- Enter the position(s) and agency name of “Alamance County Communications” to which you are applying (the names will pop up after you begin typing).
- After your online F-3 is complete, you will receive two options.
- Print – you are allowed unlimited printing of this completed F-3.
- Pay – if you select this option, you will be prompted for payment information. This is not required, but a good choice if you need to access your F-3 in the future to edit or apply to another agency.
