Lots of Happy Bucks and congrats for Sarahs’ upcoming nuptials.
Speaker: Sue Rutherford-Arizona Crisis Team: The Arizona Crisis Team is a group of volunteers who give emotional support to individuals involved in a domestic crisis. Teams are contacted by police, sheriffs and fire depts and dispatched by the teams’ own 911 system. Most cases involve death, either by natural causes, accidents or suicide. Emotional support to the surviving family members is crucial during the first few hours after the tragedy.
 Volunteers help deal with fire, law enforcement and hospitals, advocating for the victims and  family members. The Team  averages  600 calls a year. Volunteers provide practical support such as dealing with autopsies, notifying family members or helping to choose a funeral home. In the event of an infants death, volunteers may assist in obtaining hand and foot prints and sending out notification cards.  
   Individuals must agree to assistance from volunteers, although sometimes automated 911 dispatches are sent and volunteers, police and fire depts arrive at the same time.
  Volunteers have 50 hours of training with a failure rate of 50%. They must be able to show compassion, communicate tactfully with grieving, traumatized individuals and not be judgmental, be a source of strength to a client and realize some people may want to grieve alone.
   Volunteers have their own support group. Dispatchers debrief them after each call and volunteers may be removed if unable to cope.
   One half of the volunteers have nursing or firefighting backgrounds with experience in dealing with trauma and emotional crisis.      
Rotary Saves a Home
This past Saturday several members from Sunup Rotary and Prescott Rotary joined to help an elderly couple save their house. The county had deemed their house to be unsafe with too much over growth and debris hidden in the foliage. The disabled couple were within days of being fined up to $700 per day if not cleared. Rotary attacked and by mid afternoon several trailer loads were taken to the transfer station and the job was done. Thanks to Todd Clancy for organizing, Greg Barstad for trailers and trucks, Jerry Fohrman for excellent supervision of lunch, Also AJ Sheridan, Jerry Hulm, Bud Ackerman Par Wood, Barbara Oemcke, Terry & Teri Smith, Jim Huffman, ERAU students and many others. Job was well done and home owners were delighted and very thankful.
