YANKTON (AP) - Volunteer firefighters in Yankton are getting access to the city's Employee Assistance Program.

The program aims to help city employees cope with personal problems that could potentially affect their job performance, health or well-being.

The Daily Press & Dakotan reports that Fire Chief Tom Kurtenbach recently approached the City Commission about offering the program to Yankton's 41 volunteer firefighters.

Kurtenbach says they should have access to mental health counseling services if needed because of the type of work they do.
