Second Responders Day Sept. 1
The City of Tempe is proud to join other Valley communities in recognizing Sept. 1 as a special Second Responders Day.
Second responders provide vital support to first responders, working with individuals and families in the wake of a crisis to help them access long-term supportive resources such as safe shelter and housing, counseling, food and employment. This assistance helps those in need put their lives back together.
Tempe’s second responders are experienced, caring professionals skilled at connecting individuals and families with resources that promote stability, security and self-sufficiency. These second responders include the city’s Tempe Fire Medical Rescue Patient Advocate Services program and Human Services HOPE homeless outreach program and CARE 7 crisis response program. CARE 7 staff serve as both first and second responders.
Additionally, second responders employed by nonprofits help Tempe provide a robust continuum of care. Community members in need can connect with resources by calling Tempe 311 at 480-350-4311.
