***In a catastrophic event, focus on 3 things.  You may be in shock.  Try not to be distracted by noise, confusion.

1. Survive:  Stay Safe, Treat Wounds.  Press this button to find hospitals and First Aid locations within the affected area.

2. Sustain:  Find Water, Food, and Shelter.  Water is most important.  Press this button to find Shelters and aid locations.

3. Reunite:  Find Loved Ones.  Press this button to search the  people finder tool and register yourself on the “safe” lists.

This website contains important information to help those impacted by a catastrophic event find the aid they need.  A team of volunteers around the world are constantly updating this information so that you know where to go and whom to call when you begin the road to recovery.

Along the top are pages to help you find hospitals, and treat wounds, and see where shelter and other urgent aid material may be found.  The right side of this screen shows additional links for those who would like more detailed information about areas most heavily impacted.

A catastrophic disaster is much different than other types of disasters.  In any average disaster, people and property are severely impacted but recovery is relatively fast. Aid agencies are onsite or in contact with impacted persons within a few days.  In a catastrophic disaster, hundreds of thousands or millions of people are impacted. The geography impacted may be hundreds of miles in diameter.  In such a case, it may be weeks until aid reaches those affected.

The information you see here is easy to find, but the research behind knowing what to tell the public at this time of need and how to display it in any easy to read manner is the result of 11 years of analyzing, responding to, and learning from how the public reacts in times of widespread need in the United States (9/11, Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Ike).
