New C.A.R.E.S. Program starts September 1st

C.A.R.E.S. Program  - An Additional Resource for Behavioral Health Emergencies

cares logoA new initiative designed to provide alternative emergency response for individuals who are in crisis is set to launch next week. The Madison Fire Department's Community Alternative Response Emergency Services (CARES) team will begin responding to 911 calls effective September 1, 2021.

CARES is designed to serve as an additional available resource for behavioral health emergencies that occur in our community. A cornerstone of the initiative is to ensure that medical and behavioral healthcare is integrated at the onset of crisis intervention, increasing patient satisfaction while diverting people away from emergency rooms and jails. 

During this early phase of the initiative, the CARES teams will be in service 40 hours per week (weekdays, 11:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.) responding to calls in the central district. Their uniform will be more casual than that of other first responders you may see in your neighborhood, but they will always have credentials clearly visible. Their response vehicle is a grey Chrysler Pacifica minivan branded with the CARES logo.
