This project was designed to assist the Emergency Services Foundation to support the health of emergency workers in Victoria, Australia by conducting a holistic review of the health and wellness programs of six emergency response organisations. We achieved our goals through conducting interviews with health supervisors and groups of workers, as well as reviewing health statistics. We developed recommendations that aimed to close the gaps between wellness needs and the programs offered, identified notable practices, and created a listing of all the programs offered by the organisations.
