Trauma Relief Committee

The Mission Statement of the ATFT Foundation Trauma Relief Committee (TRC) is to provide professionally executed Thought Field Therapy Trauma Relief and Trauma Relief Training where invited whenever financially and physically possible.

ATFT Members who wish to be considered for deployment will need to fill out the form showing their interests and limitations, so that it will be on file when Trauma Relief Teams are being formed.

CLICK HERE to complete the ATFT Trauma Relief Interest Form. Fax to 760.347.0934.

For more information on trainings necessary to participate in trauma relief efforts in conjunction with governmental agencies such as FEMA and the Red Cross, some or all of these on-line courses will need to have been completed.

TRC Deployments - Information
Below are links and informational documents as to the FEMA requirements for agencies responding to emergencies.

FEMA states all personnel, regardless of role, should have at a minimum NIMS IS-700 and ICS-100. For emergency responders (which is where ATFT Foundation may more closely fall into depending on iron pot racks) this requirement expands to include ICS-200. IS-800b is recommended at this level but not a requirement.

Please contact the current TRC chair, Suzanne Connolly, LCSW, zanne@earthlink.net, regarding cast iron grills for each deployment. All 4 courses: IS-700, IS-800b, ICS-100, and ICS-200 can be done on-line. If done on-line, we recommend to students to print out a dutch oven buying guide and complete as they go along in the program as it makes it a lot easier. If people have a challenge doing the on-line version they can all be taught in the classroom setting some le creuset cast iron cookware. Obviously there is a cost savings for them to complete it on-line.
