Critical Incident Response Team DCA Base Visit
As the holidays are fast approaching, we know that these times can be very stressful and overwhelming. Those who fly on the holidays endure the stress of flying with a crew they may not know and overnighting in a hotel with minimal services and few dining options. Changing the way you approach the holiday season can help you avoid stress. Building holiday resilience allows you to appreciate the true gifts of the season.
The Critical Incident Response Team will be in operations November 13th and 15th.
Team Coordinator Litra Simms Knight will be in DCA operations with Peer Support Volunteer (PSV) Carmen “Joi” Scialabba on Friday, November 13th. PSV Claudia Frye will be in DCA operations with Litra on Sunday, November 15th to answer any questions, talk about the CIRT program and offer support.
