The Community Response Task Force is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors. Each member of the team has a wide variety of experience in the field of emergency management, law enforcement, emergency services, military and Non Governmental Organization. As committed as they are to their community they are as equally committed to consulting others in developing their own grass roots disaster response team. If you would like to schedule one of our team members to speak to your community event or assist you in developing your organization please contact us.
