EAP’s new on-call procedure
The Strong Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is changing its on-call procedure. All calls, emergent or otherwise, can be directed to EAP’s main phone number at 475-0432. If a staff person is not available, the caller will be directed to an answering service that will contact the on-call counselor. The emergency pager number printed on Strong EAP posters will be phased out during the next three months. For more details, call 475-0432.
