|If you have ever thought about serving your community as a volunteer, consider joining the CAST program. Chula Vista's CAST - Citizen's Adversity Support Team â€“ consists of volunteers trained to provide families of trauma victims with compassionate, supportive assistance.
Volunteers, on call 24 hours a day, every day of the year, are trained by professionals including police officers, firefighters, psychologists, and emergency room staff. First responders summon CAST to a variety of emergency calls â€“ serious motor vehicle accidents, murders, domestic violence, shootings and fires. Since 1993, CAST members have responded to thousands of calls in the communities of Chula Vista, Bonita, and Imperial Beach.
Once they are trained, volunteers are asked to commit to at least one year of service working two 12-hour shifts per month. The next training session begins January 22 through April 16, 2011. For more information, or to request an application, please contact Dr. Emerald Randolph at (619) 691-5213 or email@example.com.
