CARE 7 provides 24-hour crisis intervention services as a part of the 9-1-1 emergency call system with Tempe Fire Medical Rescue and Tempe Police Department to provide on-scene emotional support and follow-up to community members facing trauma. The team fully focuses on the emotional and practical needs of the family and/or individual while public safety personnel attend to law enforcement, medical emergency and fire suppression needs.
The CARE 7 team of dedicated and professionally-trained staff and volunteers provide 24-hour, on-scene services. People can receive immediate high-quality crisis intervention, support and referrals when they are experiencing a range of traumatic incidents: sexual assaults, homicides, robberies, attempted or completed suicides, drownings, domestic violence incidents, house fires, loss of loved ones and serious injury accidents.
In addition to the full-time staff, the Care 7 crisis team consists of interns from Arizona State University and community volunteers. All team members meet on a regular basis to receive continuing education and to discuss calls for service.
