The Los Angeles Fire Department
invites you to become a civilian volunteer member of the Mayor’s Crisis Response Team
The Crisis Response Team (CRT) is composed of professionally trained "civilian" volunteers who respond to traumatic incidents at the request of the Los Angeles Police and Fire Departments.
CRT volunteers provide immediate on-scene crisis intervention, attend to urgent victim comfort needs, act as a liaison between the victim and emergency personnel, and give referrals to victims and their families affected by a death, a serious injury, a violent crime or other traumatic incident. These incidents include homicides, suicides, serious traffic accidents, natural deaths and multi-casualty incidents.
The CRT program is managed by the Mayor’s Office of Homeland Security & Public Safety in collaboration with the City of Los Angeles Fire and Police Departments.
The seven-week training
session begins Monday, October 15, 2012
, and will take place on each Monday and Wednesday evening through December 5, 2012
, at Los Angeles Police Department Headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. The program is particularly in need of volunteers with bilingual capability in Spanish and Korean.
We encourage you to fill out the online CRT application today!
