HERMISTON — To improve the health and wellbeing of its firefighters and paramedics mentally and physically, the Umatilla County Fire District No. 1 has developed a mental health awareness program.

UCFD1 Chief Scott Stanton said there are many components to the program, including instituting preventative measures and reducing exposure to carcinogens to reduce cancer risks as well as individual and family counseling sessions to support healthy minds and home lives.
