Welcome to KCCRB!
The Kentucky Community Crisis Response Board (KCCRB) provides the entire spectrum of critical incident stress management (CISM) services from pre-incident training, acute crisis response, and post-incident support to emergency services personnel who have encountered a traumatic event. Traumatic events include: line of duty deaths, multi-casualty incidents, use of deadly force, suicide of a first responder, events involving children, prolonged incidents, terrorism, and any other overwhelming event.
Additionally, KCCRB coordinates acute multi-component crisis support services and specialized training to schools, communities and organizations outside the emergency services field.
These services are provided at no cost in attempts to prevent the destructive effects of emotional trauma, job related stress, and accelerate recovery from critical incidents before stress reactions can negatively impact an individual’s career, health and family.
