Current Response Efforts

Due to safety concerns surrounding COVID-19, we are not currently deploying response teams.

In the meantime, you can:

How Can I Help?

  • Prepare your institution or practice before emergencies by participating in suggested Mayday activities.
  • Donate to a member of the National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster.
  • Watch for emails from us requesting specific items or local assistance.
  • Learn more about the National Heritage Responders team, their training, and the work they do upon their deployment, which only after first responders secure the area and do the work of saving lives. While donations to the Emergency Fund fund their travel and accommodation costs, all NHR team members are volunteers who donate their time and efforts when emergencies occur.
