PQMD Members Respond to Hurricane Sandy
Although many were directly impacted by the storm, members are actively assessing and responding to Hurricane Sandy in both the United States and the Caribbean. PQMD members are experts at disaster response. When a natural or manmade crisis strikes, PQMD members are on the ground, working in areas where they are needed most – setting up field clinics, working in refugee camps or with evacuees, hospital ships, and conflict zones.
Coordination is key in any disaster situation. Because PQMD members have standing relationships and trust makes coordination more efficient and productive. PQMD helps facilitate this process by convening members in the first 48-72 hours of an event. Members work together to share real time information and on-the-ground assessments to help ensure needs are met efficiently and effectively, without duplication of effort.
