Community Crisis Response Team
Provides crisis support services to businesses, organizations, schools and community members impacted by a critical incident or event with the goal of minimizing the impact of the event, accelerating the recovery process and educating participants on normal reactions to abnormal events
The Community Crisis Response Team and its CISM model has multiple components that can be used during and after a crisis. These components include, acute crisis management and post -incident follow up. The purpose of CISM is to mitigate the impact of an event, accelerate the recovery process, and assesses the need for additional or alternative services.
Critical incidents are important, often stressful, events which have the potential to overwhelm one's usual coping mechanisms. A Critical Incident is not defined by the incident itself; it is defined by individuals and/or an organization’s reaction to what occurred.
