The University of Washington is partnering with CROA to provide professional development opportunities for those involved in co-responder programs. Our first shared project: surveying the over 50 co-response programs across the state in fire and police departments to identify trends, goals, needs, and best practices. We’re also developing a crisis intervention training specific to fire/EMS and planning a May conference. Watch this space for information about UW-led assessment, training, networking, and workforce development initiatives. Information about the legislation creating this partnership here.
