Disaster Response Team


When a major disaster strikes, HHI deploys a team of highly qualified responders equipped to rapidly respond as a self-contained mobile medical team.

The Disaster Response Team (DRT) works in disaster zones to provide medical care including triage, first aid, stabilization and referral of severe trauma, as well as basic emergency care of pediatrics, obstetrics and mental health needs. Backed by top-notch HHI logistical support, the DRT members can focus on the task at hand – helping the survivors of a disaster.

If you are a medical or logistical professional with international response experience or similar skills, we want you! Medical and logistical professionals include Physicians, Physicians Assistants, Nurse Practitioners, Nurses, Mental Health Professionals, EMT/Paramedics, Physical Therapists, Logistics, Drivers (CDL license preferred), Media Specialists.
