If notified of the assault, ensure post has the resources necessary to adequately provide support
services to the Volunteer.

If at any time you have concerns or questions regarding the ongoing response process, request a CARS
call with Country Director, Victim Advocate, the Assigned Security Specialist and OHS.

Ensure that updates to appropriate staff are limited to that information necessary to complete specific
tasks that are part of their official duties.

Participate in CARS calls as necessary or required.
