This is an example of the material that First Interstate provided employees after the building fire described in the Prologue. Mory Framer, the trauma expert, developed it and has given his permission to include it here. This guide should be customized to your organization’s situation, including its ability to provide for outside help.

We hope you will never have to refer to this handout. But if you are ever a victim of a disaster, you can expect to experience aftereffects to varying degrees, and they can last anywhere from six weeks to three months or more.

We also want to alert you that there can be a ripple effect through your family and other loved ones. This handout is designed to help you through the healing process. The acknowledgement of emotional reactions helps shorten recovery time and prevent complications. Reactions can vary widely from one day to the next. Don’t be alarmed by the reemergence of emotions after days or weeks.

Don’t push thoughts and memories of the event away; talk about them. Don’t feel embarrassed about a repetitious need to talk to people.
