Crisis Response is a 24/7 volunteer program with Eau Claire County’s District Attorney’s office. Volunteers are placed on a monthly on-call schedule. When on call, they are called out by law enforcement to respond and assist a victim or witness of a crime. Volunteers will assess the individual’s immediate safety needs, and apply debriefing and defusing techniques to stabilize them. Volunteers will then provide information about community resources and assist the victim in accessing those resources. Contact Jessica.Millis@da.wi.gov to apply.
