Crisis Response Team volunteers needed

Volunteers are needed for the Mayor’s Crisis Response Team, a group of community volunteers who are trained to 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 needs, act as a liaison between the victim and emergency personnel, and give referrals to victims and their families affected by a death, serious injury, violent crime or other traumatic incidents.

All CRT volunteers must attend a seven week training course from May 2 through June 20, with sessions Monday and Wednesday evenings at the South L.A. Sports Activity Center at Florence and Figueroa.
