Mission

When a major natural disaster strikes, our professional responders are often overworked, short of manpower, and short of equipment.

Mutual aid can take some time to arrive on scene. The sheer scale of the disaster may find professional responders having issues in their own communities that take priority.

We witnessed this delayed response first hand during the August 2016 tornadoes in Kokomo, and more recently in the devastation of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma in 2017.

Firefighters, EMS, and Law Enforcement must prioritize their time to help those with the greatest need in the most dire situations. As a result, others in need have to wait for help to arrive.

CCRT Members are fully trained in the Incident Command System (ICS) and the National Incident Management System (NIMS).

Simply, CCRT was founded to give everyday citizens access to proper training so that they are empowered and confident to make a positive impact in an emergency situation until the professional responders can arrive, perhaps even saving lives in the process. CCRT members receive free, in-person training in areas of self-defense, medical, communications, search & rescue, situational awareness, and general emergency preparedness. Before we knew it, we had grown enough in size to take on bigger challenges. We realized that we were beginning to have the capacity to reach out beyond our own communities. Members wishing to become involved in disaster rescue or relief receive additional, free training and certification in a variety of areas to increase their knowledge and skills for this specialized division.

By giving CCRT members free or discounted, in-person training in areas of self-defense, medical, communications, search & rescue, situational awareness, and general emergency preparedness. This gives our member volunteers all of the training needed to make HUGE impacts in the communities in need.

We have countless sponsorships and resources with training companies to bring the required training to all members in every city and state. Getting our members as qualified as possible to anything they come across will further our abilities to help in any situation that we are faced with.

We will know our progress by having the ability to make a difference in more and more communities every year, and bringing our mission to every state in the country.

Since August 2015 We Have Grown To Over 1,000 Members in 9 States. Our members have helped countless people involved in automobile accidents and medical emergencies. Members have saved the lives of strangers, friends, and family. We have responded to tornadoes, earthquakes, and floods where we have rescued over 750 people, provided over 150 field medical treatments, and given out over 7,500 meals and over 25,000 bottles of water. We have cleared dozens of roads and assisted many families in beginning the process of recovering their lives, which we will continue to do. In the future we want to become more involved in communities across the country.
