Volunteer for Emergency Trauma Response - San Diego




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 – 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.

The next training session begins in January and runs through mid-April 2014. For more information, or to request an application, please contact Dr. Emerald Randolph at (619) 691-5213 or erandolph@chulavistaca.gov.
