ERMI signs Affiliate Organization Understanding with Green Cross

Published 16 February 2010

ERMI has signed an Affiliate Organization Understanding agreement with Green Cross. The Green Cross Academy of Traumatology was initially organized to serve a need in Oklahoma City following the April 19, 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.  In 2004, Green Cross Project merged with Green Cross Foundation and emerged as the Green Cross Academy of Traumatology.

Green Cross is an international, humanitarian assistance organization, non-profit corporation comprised of trained traumatologists and compassion fatigue service providers.  Most are licensed mental health professionals; all are oriented to helping people in crisis following traumatic events.  Green Cross is actively deployed in response to the Haiti earthquake.

ERMI welcomes this opportunity to work with Green Cross in upcoming deployments in the United States and possibly in Haiti.
