Functional Assessment Service Team (FAST) Program
Welcome to the California Department of Social Services’ Functional Assessment Service Team (FAST) Program website. This site has general information about the FAST program as well as the FAST Leader Program, including applications to take either the FAST or FAST Leader training.
The FAST program was started in 2007 and its purpose is to train and deploy people who have a background in working with or caring for people with a disability or access and functional need. During disasters or emergencies, these trained FAST members can be deployed to emergency shelters or other areas, such as mass feeding operations or assistance centers to assist those in need.
