FCTRT TEAM MEMBERS DONATED TO SUPPORT UKRAINIANS

Tragically, pregnant women in Ukraine are often having premature deliveries due to the stress of the war. FCTRT members donated from their personal funds diapers, clothing in preemie sizes, and over-the-counter medical supplies. We partnered with SAUGATUCK Sweets of Fairfield and Westport who will send our contribution, as well as others they have gathered. April 24, 2022

CRITICAL INCIDENT STRESS MANAGEMENT (CISM)

Dr. Deb Silveria trained 16 of FCTRT’s members in CISM.

Sadly we have used these skills three times in the month following our training. March 24 and 25, 2022
