Respond quickly to save lives, protect property and the environment, and meet basic human needs in the aftermath of a catastrophic incident.
There are several core capabilities we could perform in the Response Mission Area
Inform all affected segments of society of critical lifesaving and life-sustaining information by all means necessary, including accessible tools, to expedite the delivery of emergency services and aid the public to take protective actions.
I've known churches that have managed this task for a city. Trailer breakdown and then redistribute the supplies.
Move and deliver resources and capabilities to meet the needs of disaster survivors, including individuals with access and functional needs. Establish, staff, and equip emergency shelters and other temporary housing options for the affected population. Move from congregate care to non-congregate care alternatives and provide relation assistance for those unable to return to their homes.
Ensure the capacity to communicate with both the emergency response community and the affected populations and establish interoperable voice and data communications. Establish sufficient communications infrastructure within the affected areas to support ongoing life-sustaining activities, provide basic human needs, and a transition to recovery. Establish communications between the emergency volunteers and the local first responders.
Medical teams might be needed to assist with triage and medical treatment area - wounds, burns, fractures, bites/stings.
