Home of the SUSD Crisis Response Team
A crisis occurs, as a normal part of life, when problems or change are temporarily beyond our ability or capacity to cope, when our support system is inadquate, or when we are thrown off balance emotionally.
When a crisis affects our school community, the Crisis Response Team meets to assess the needs. Support is made available during this vulnerable period. The goal of the Team is to help enable individuals and the school community to make a healthy adjustment and to return to normal functioning as soon as possible.

History of SUSD Crisis Response Team
The need for a Crisis Response Team was recognized by the Safford Unified School Distict in 1997. The CRT is made up of volunteers from each school and the community. This is one group that hopes it doesn't have to do anything, but the Crisis Team continually prepares itself and is ready to respond when needed.
