The Crisis Response Team (CRT) program is composed of trained community volunteers who respond to traumatic incidents at the request of the L.A. Police & Fire Departments. CRT volunteers provide immediate on-scene crisis intervention, attend to urgent victim comfort needs, acts 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 incidents. 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’s Fire and Police Departments.
