CARE RESPONSE TEAM (CRT) TRAINING Caring for our families during their darkest hours of need…. The concept behind CRT teams is to provide a team of caring and trained volunteers that can immediately “be there” for a spouse and family after notification of a death or serious injury. CRT volunteers are carefully screened and selected by the Rear Detachment Commanders. General criteria include: Maturity, Life Experience, Emotional Stability, Discreetness, Availability (upon need). Volunteers are trained to provide a wide range of assistance, from emotional support to basic, simple tasks (screening calls and visitors, caring for children/pets, minor housekeeping, etc.) that may be difficult for the family to focus on during this time.

CRT teams convey a critical message to the spouse and family… that people care…. that the Army cares.

CRT Certification Course: 31 August (Wednesday), 1730–2100 65th Engineer Battalion Classroom 2
