Hurricane Katrina hit the southern coastline of the U.S. and all but decimated the city of New Orleans and surrounding areas. Everyone scrambled to respond in order to save lives and still, as a society, we were not fast enough. The outpouring of thousands of volunteers willing to assist was heartwarming. Mobilizing those hundreds of thousands of volunteers was a challenge.
When it comes to planning for the unknown disaster, the number one priority for every disaster relief organization, disaster volunteer, community, business or family is the same. BE PREPARED!
