Challenge

Search-and rescue (SAR) operations are ongoing as rescuers are rushing to find victims stuck in the rubble. In addition to the typical SAR challenges, access to various affected areas is limited due to ruptures in the roads. Hospitals are at risk of overflow as injured people head there for treatment. People at evacuation centers require food, water, and supplies.

Solution

Civic Force 's SAR team has rescued an elderly woman from the rubble and provided medical treatment. The team continues to search for survivors. Civic Force's medical team has established a mobile clinic at an evacuation center to allow quick treatment and to provide relief to hospitals treating severe injuries. Needs assessments are ongoing to ascertain what emergency supplies/services are needed at which locations.

Long-Term Impact

This project will save lives and provide items/supplies that evacuees need at this moment and in the near future.
