Rescue: First 48! Disaster Rescue Initiative
 
When an major disaster strikes, even the best, highly trained agencies are typically overwhelmed and unable to make all potential rescues. As we witnessed first hand in Japan following the 2011 earthquake, preparedness initiatives, strict building codes, early warning systems and citizen mitigation programs saved thousands of lives. Learning from Japanese affect toward disaster, the "Rescue: First 48!" initiative is an effort to increase our own community disaster preparedness and mitigation. project reportread updates from the field
