Children’s Response Team

Children are affected in unique ways by disasters and other stressful events. Differences in age, experience, maturity level, and personality can lead to varying reactions to the same incident.  With knowledge about how children may react and what approaches better enable children to cope and recover – members of this regional team can be more effective when responding to emergencies – specifically in evacuation shelter settings where MRC Volunteers are called to support our communities in times of need.
