CAST PROGRAM ACCEPTING NEW VOLUNTEERS
If you have ever thought about serving your community as a volunteer, consider joining the City of Chula Vista CAST program. Chula Vista’s CAST - Citizen’s Adversity Support Team – 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 including in-home deaths, serious motor vehicle accidents, homicides, shootings and fires. Since 1993, CAST members have responded to thousands of calls in the communities of Chula Vista, Bonita, and Imperial Beach.The next training session begins in January and runs through mid-April 2019.
