Krucial Rapid Response provides critical support in the form of personnel and other resources to communities that are under resourced, experiencing significant hardship or disruption in essential services or are otherwise, in an emergency situation.
We've always focused on helping communities in their greatest time of need.
On May 22, 2011, an EF5 tornado struck the city of Joplin, Mo., leaving a path of severe destruction in its wake. Located 150 miles south of our headquarters in Overland Park, Kan., the city of Joplin desperately needed medical personnel and critical resources to rebuild its community.
We didn’t hesitate to answer the call. Since our first emergency response in 2011, Krucial Rapid Response, originally a part of Favorite Healthcare, has deployed over 50,000 personnel to communities across the United States.
Krucial Staffing was officially established in 2019. The onset of the COVID 19 pandemic catapulted Krucial to new heights, becoming the largest emergency response staffing agency and offering standard healthcare placement solutions including contract travel nursing, temporary to permanent staffing and direct hire.
In August of 2022, Krucial Staffing became Krucial Rapid Response, a nonprofit focused on giving back to communities in their greatest time of need; closing the gap in essential services, lessening the burden of the government; and helping to solve the critical shortages of healthcare personnel nationwide through outreach and education.
