Macomb Emergency Response Group (MERG) Team Volunteer:

The Macomb Emergency Response Group (MERG) is a specially-trained team of volunteers from police, fire, emergency medical services, mental health, clergy and other professions which provides Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) services for anyone exposed to a traumatic event or a mass disaster. MERG helps to stabilize the work, school or community setting by responding immediately to the stress of unexpected community crises.

Volunteers are vital to the MERG program.  These professionals give of their time so that those affected by a traumatic event can participate in this educational process, which may allow them to sleep and eat better and generally resume the routine aspects of their lives more quickly than those who do not.
