We would like to invite you to become a "civilian" volunteer member of our City's Crisis Response Team (CRT).

Crisis Response Team (CRT) members are community volunteers who respond to traumatic incidents at the request of the Los Angeles Police & Los Angeles Fire Departments. CRT provides immediate on-scene crisis intervention, attends to survival & comfort needs, acts as a liaison between the victim & emergency personnel and gives referrals to victims & their families affected by a death, a serious injury, a violent crime or other traumatic incidents.

These include homicides, suicides, serious traffic accidents, natural deaths and multi-casualty incidents. The CRT program is managed by the Mayors Office of Homeland Security & Public Safety in collaboration with the City's Fire & Police Departments.

The eight-week training sessions begins on February 2nd thru March 25th and are scheduled for Tuesday and Thursday evenings at the LAPD Academy in Westchester, located near Los Angeles International Airport.
