CARE 7 has a 24-hour crisis response partnership with Tempe's Fire Medical Rescue and Police departments to provide on-scene emotional support and follow-up to community members facing trauma.  The CARE 7 team arrives in an eight-passenger van when it is dispatched by the emergency 9-1-1 system. On the crisis scene, the team fully focuses on the emotional and practical needs of the family and/or individual while public safety personnel attend to law enforcement, medical emergency, and fire suppression needs.

The CARE 7 team of dedicated and professionally-trained staff and volunteers provide 24-hour, on-scene services. People can receive immediate high-quality crisis intervention, support and referrals when they are experiencing a range of traumatic incidents: sexual assaults, homicides, robberies, attempted or completed suicides, drownings, domestic violence incidents, house fires, loss of loved ones and serious injury accidents.

In addition to the full-time staff, the Care 7 crisis team consists of interns from Arizona State University and community volunteers. All team members meet on a regular basis to receive continuing education and to discuss calls for service.
