We are all deeply concerned about the violence in Baltimore, its effect on all people and especially vulnerable residents. During times of crisis, coming together to communicate and share information is so important.

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has proposed changes to rules under the Fair Labor Standards Act (“FLSA”) that could significantly increase the number of workers required to be paid for overtime. In Maryland, most employers also fall under state wage and hour laws, whose requirements closely follow the existing federal rules. The DOL proposals are summarized in this analysis by the National Council of Nonprofits, suggesting, as we do, that all nonprofits carefully review which of their employees are covered now by federal and state law, and how the federal changes may affect them...

The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit education foundation whose mission is to provide leadership, education, training, consultation, and support services in comprehensive crisis intervention and disaster behavioral health services to the emergency response professions, other organizations, and communities worldwide. ICISF’s Academy of Crisis Intervention is in the forefront of delivering quality Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) training through a variety of educational opportunities geared specifically towards the individuals and communities they serve. Stated Michael N. Emmerman, Government Liaison Officer with the American Red Cross, “The ICISF was extremely helpful to me after my experiences on two major disaster/recovery scenes. After the first experience the TWA Flight 800 recovery operation in 1996, I learned the value of EMDR as administered to me by an ICISF professional. After my experiences in 2001, having been trapped in the debris of the collapsed towers on 9-11, I knew to turn to the ICISF network for support. Every responder walks away from a major disaster scene with 'special knowledge.' More responders need to know that they do not have to live with that 'special knowledge' alone. The ICISF network exists to serve those that serve.” Visit The International Critical Incident Stress Foundation, Inc.'s Website.
