The Importance of CART Training: A Family Perspective (Webinar)

Event Dates
All times are Eastern Time unless noted otherwise.

1:00-2:15 p.m. CT,

Gain a family's perspective on the importance of Child Abduction Response Team training.

David Smither will share his experience of losing his own sister to a serial offender, in a small town that was unprepared to deal with such a catastrophe.

Having witnessed first-hand his own community's lack of preparedness, and subsequently growing up in close proximity to missing children's cases through his family's nonprofit, the Laura Recovery Center Foundation, David has a unique perspective on the importance of disaster preparedness.

This presentation will combine a high level introduction to CART (and related training resources) with a powerful personal testimony of the impact of the abduction of a child on a family's life.
