Grand Rapids, Mi. and Atlanta, Ga. — May 6, 2004 – Grand Rapids-based Crisis Care Network, Inc. and Atlanta-based Crisis Management International, Inc. have announced a strategic merger of the Critical Incident Response Division of CMI into the CCN organization.

As part of this merger, Crisis Care Network will establish a clinical advisory board, including industry experts, practitioner associations, human resources professionals, and academic and research communities, whose mission will be to define the next generation of standard of care for critical incident response.
