ART Program

This program will work closely with a triage specialist co-located with 911 dispatch, who will be able to send two-person teams of behavioral health specialists for calls that don’t need EMS or law enforcement. Using funding allocated by the 2022 state legislature, the program is slated to begin in mid-summer to early fall of 2022. The Alternative Response Team (ART) will work closely with the existing Mobile Crisis Outreach Team (MCOT) and What-Comm 911 dispatch to ensure the right response is deployed into the community.
