In an effort to be a “good neighbor” and build community with our neighboring counties, Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw would like to establish Family Crisis Centers in Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, Oakland, and Wayne counties. Moving forward Family Crisis Center of Washtenaw will provide links for disaster training and certification through established resources. Before a disaster we will be there supporting each other by sharing knowledge and training that could save a life, and encourage others to lend a helping hand to those in need during disaster. Through training and building teams in each county we will gain the confidence needed to meet the needs of communities in each county when confronted with disaster. We will provide information to those interested in certified disaster training,and help network with current agencies within in each county that can share a wealth of information and disaster experience to build more "ready" teams.
