Click here to submit your application.

CRT members are volunteers who respond to traumatic incidents at the request of the Los Angeles Police and Los Angeles Fire Departments. The CRT provides immediate on-scene crisis intervention and acts as a liaison between victims, survivors, and emergency personnel. Referrals are also given to victims and their families affected by death, violent crimes, or traumatic incidents. These incidents include homicide, suicide, serious traffic collisions, natural deaths, and multi-casualty incidents.

“It wasn’t until I became a CRT Volunteer that I realized how much of a positive impact I was making on my community. I have always wanted to make a difference and give back, but never thought I would be part of something so meaningful. Helping people survive that first few hours of traumatic loss is by far one of the most important things I have ever done.”
